In response to a recent publication announcing that ALDIN had set up a fund raising committee for its members; NBA Ikorodu Branch decided to extend its own palliative to the ALDIN members.
Bayo Akinlade Esq, Chairman of NBA Ikorodu Branch noted that the donation was long overdue. He said that ALDIN had been marginalised for too long within NBA, besides the fact that they pay the same Bar dues and are made to compete with full able-bodied members of the legal profession.
“I am hoping that my fellow brother NBA Branch Chairmen will make a donation to ALDIN as we have done.” said Akinlade
“All we did was to donate a little more than 10% of what we received from the NBA National so it’s like paying a tithe”
“We have freely received so we should freely give”
ALDIN membership consist of lawyers that are visually impaired, mobility impaired, hearing impaired amongst other disabilities.
The Association continues to seek support from other lawyers and public spirited Nigerians. Below is their account details
