We adopt the below masterfully written eulogy by our friend Ifeanyi Agwuncha in celebrating a quintessential Learned Silk, Dr. Onyechi Ikeazu SAN.
Greatness from The Legendary William Shakespeare’s lenses is assessed from three vistas coined aptly in these words – Some are born great, Some achieve greatness and Some have greatness thrust upon them. The ideal situation is that an Individual attains greatness from one mode. However it is uncommon, unusual and very extraordinary for an Individual to satisfy the triumvirate of Shakespeare’s ideals of greatness.
When a Lawyer has a Father who is a Judge and a Queens Counsel, he has by that premise satisfied the first of the trilogy, He is born great. If a Lawyer by sheer industry worked very hard as an Advocate, contributed to several locus classicus that has shaped the jurisprudence, aiding practice and research, he has achieved greatness. A Lawyer who took over a promising law firm set up several decades prior to his call, maintained that tradition, took the firm to greater heights beyond where he met it , has greatness bestowed on him.
This summarizes the strides of Ezennia, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu SAN. His Dad a Queens Counsel and ex Judge. He has by sheer industry and unparalleled advocacy, contributed to several locus classics in our laws. He took over the Dad’s law firm to even greater heights beyond where he met it.
In all modesty Dr. Ikpeazu, OON, SAN is one of the outstanding Practitioners in the Country today. He is a great personality. He ticks all the boxes of greatness as outlined by Shakespeare.
