We felicitate and celebrate with one of us who was recently appointed the Director, Office of the Public Defender, Lagos State – Dr. Babajide Martins.
Dr. Martins, a Legal Luminary, a Progressive and Seasoned Technocrat, a Human Rights Advocate, a Passionate and Relentless Worker in the Temple of Justice, is a graduate of University of Lagos and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1990.
Office of the Public Defender was established for the purpose of rendering free and quality legal services to the disadvantaged people of Lagos State and it has been responsible for helping defend the common people from crimes such as domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, rape, and even business and other disputes and so on.
Dr. Martins, we are proud of your giant strides and track record of excellence. We wish you well in your new role and we like to reiterate the words of His Excellency, Governor Sanwo-olu that you “let justice be your guide!”
On behalf of the National President (Worldwide), Dr. John Momoh, OON, NPOM, and all Akokites at home and abroad, we say a big Congratulations to you Sir.
