A Legend: Chief Gani Fawehinmi has passed

It's another sad moment for our nation...it's a period to reflect...As another of the nation's legend...a man who stood in time of fierce adversity for the truth and spoke with so much convictions at periods when even those who govern us could not rise to the occassion...a man who understood the plight of the ordinary citizen and rose to the challenge of taken upon himself their cases when other's wont...

Foremost human rights activist and civil rights lawyer, Chief Gani O. Fawehinmi (SAN) passed on in the early hour's of this morning, Saturday 5th September.
