Bamidele for Body of Benchers
Sanni Onogu, Abuja
THE Body of Benchers in Nigeria has appointed the Chairman of Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Opeyemi Bamidele, as its member.
The Body of Benchers is a professional body concerned with the admission of prospective students into the Nigerian Law School.
The body also regulates the call of graduates of Law School to the Nigerian Bar as well as the regulation of the legal profession in Nigeria.
In a letter addressed to Bamidele, dated Monday, October 28, 2019, the body acknowledged the fact that the senator has paid his dues as a seasoned legal practitioner and staunch advocate of the Rule of Law in Nigeria.
According to the letter of appointment signed by the Secretary of the Body of Benchers, Mrs. H. A. Turaki, the senator representing Ekiti Central’s appointment was “sequel to the resolution by the Body of Benchers that Chairmen of the National Assembly Committees on Judiciary should be made members of the Body of Benchers by virtue of office”.
A statement from the senator’s media office reads: “Bamidele is a New York Attorney, Member of the Seventh House of Representatives and three-term member of the prestigious Lagos State Executive Council (Exco) between 2002 and 2011.
Lawmaker seeks polytechnic in Badagry
“He is a lawyer without border, licensed to practise in the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court; an Attorney and Counsellor-at-Law of the State of New York, United States of America (U.S.A) and a Notary Public of Nigeria.
“Bamidele graduated with honours in 1986 from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), Ile-Ife, Osun State, with a Bachelor of Arts degree and, subsequently, from the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Edo State, Nigeria, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) degree in 1990. After his call to the Nigerian Bar a year later, Bamidele launched into a full-time legal career in 1992.
“He obtained a Master of Laws (LL.M) degree from the world-renowned Franklin Pierce Law Centre in the University of New Hampshire Law School, in Concord, New Hampshire, U.S.A.”
“He specialised in Intellectual Property Law, with bias in International Patent, Trademark and Copyright Law, including the Licensing of International Technology Transfer.
“A learned counsel of no mean stature, Bamidele is a member of the New York Bar, a member of the American Bar Association, a member of the International Bar Association.
“He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (Nigeria), the Chartered Institute of Management Consultants as well as the Chartered Institute of Local Government and Public Administration, Nigeria, among others.
“It is quite refreshing that Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele’s appointment as a member of the prestigious Body of Benchers can be described as putting a round peg in a round hole…”
