    “The irredentist statement credited to Chief Niyi Akintola SAN has once again confirmed the growing stratification in the legal profession.”

    Falana further stressed that the description given to the immediate past President of the Bar by Akintola SAN smacks of empty arrogance of monumental proportion, and demanded for a withdrawal of the statement.

    He said; “The description of the immediate past President of the NBA, Olu Akpata Esq as the “that boy” or “eleyi” smacks of empty arrogance of monumental proportion. It is a jejune statement that ought to be withdrawn by the learned Senior Advocate.”
