Portable: Did We Bring Him There To Promote Some Kind Of Immortality? The Answer Is No – Osigwe SAN

According to Vanguard, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has described the controversy as unnecessary following the performance of controversial singer Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, at its 2023 general conference.

Some of the lawyers are said to have organized the expulsion after Zazu’s prosecutor took the stage at a night event labeled “Unbarred”, which the judges organized as part of a conference at the Velodrome, M.K.O. of the activity. Abiola Stadium. 

Addressing the matter on Friday, the NBA, through its conference planning committee chairman, Afam Osigwe, SAN, maintained that Portable’s presence at the event was only for entertainment and not to set moral standards for lawyers.

Osigwe, SAN, said it was unfortunate that everything that emerged at the conference was being politicized.

He said, “I am the chairman of the conference planning committee, and I am responsible for everything. When I hear comments about Portable, I wonder if we brought him in to be an ambassador for the NBA or to entertain guests.

We brought Portable to entertain lawyers, not to set moral standards. It was entertainment.

We may not agree with his choice. You may not like him. He may not be my idea of a best friend. But to say that because the NBA invited him, we committed an act of cruelty is an unfair comment on creativity and entertainment.

He didn’t turn an NBA event into a dope-smoking event. People say he’s on trial, but I’m wondering what about the presumption of innocence? Has he been convicted in any court? “Did we bring him there to promote some kind of immorality? The answer is no,” added Osigwe, SAN.
