The very sad news just hit me from TVC that the erstwhile living legend of the Nigerian bar, Gani Fawehinmi is gone. Long before he was belatedly conferred with the garb of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), the vast majority of Nigerians had long conferred on Gani the honour of 'Senior Advocate of the Masses (SAM)', on account of his unflinching fight for the basic rights of the people.
At this time that the lobsided moral values in the country has been brought to the fore once again with the banking crisis,the priceless value of men like Gani,who lived sacrificially, spoke sincerely and fearlessly, and
showed that genuine hardwork pays, cannot but be appreciated.
If we genuinely want Nigeria to progress,our leaders and indeed our people must learn to emulate Gani's principles and lifestyle.
May his soul rest in peace.
