On January 16, 2014, Mr. Rickey Tarfa (SAN) presented an address on behalf of the body of senior advocates of Nigeria at the valedictory session in honor of Honorable Justice Marcellus Idowu Awokulehin.
In less than one month, this is the second time that we have assembled in this Court i.e. the Federal High Court to bid farewell to yet another Honorable members of the Bench. Last week on 9th January, 2014 this Court witnessed in Abuja a valedictory session in honor of yet another of its best hands the Hon. Justice Adamu Bello.
This time it is the Honorable Justice Marcellus Idowu Awokulehin. This is but one of the many farewells, but, in the presence of this glittering array of distinguished witnesses, especially his colleagues on the Bench, his family, friends, well-wishers and members of the public, it is perhaps one of the most important.
