Let’s give a standing ovation to our very own ambassador and fellow Akokite, Mr. Adeola Austin Oyinlade, lawyer, human rights and International law expert and United Nations’ Peace Ambassador as he adds another feather to his hats.
A few hours ago, he received the prestigious 2021 American Bar Association (ABA) International Human Rights Award in Chicago, USA – the FIRST NIGERIAN to be so honoured!
The award was given to Mr. Oyinlade in recognition of his works advancing human rights solutions in Africa.
NOTE: The world body of lawyers, International Bar Association (IBA), had in October 2018 in Rome, Italy, named Mr. Oyinlade the ‘IBA Human Rights Lawyer of the Year’ for his outstanding contribution as a legal practitioner to human rights advancement.
Mr. Oyinlade, (LL.B, LL.M, UNILAG) is another proof that our great Alma mater is a factory of movers and shakers, academic paragons and global icons!
