"I will go into active advocacy. In fact, when I started this thing, I wasn’t sure I would live to enjoy what I’m enjoying today."

"So, I said even if I die reading Law, the day I would be buried, they will mention it, that ‘this man died studying Law’. But now that I’m hale and hearty, I’m going into advocacy."

"After all, the day we were being called to bar, most young people couldn’t stand up. They were sitting for that period, but I was standing."

"In fact, it was my wife and son who both insisted I sit down. But I insisted on standing because I wanted to show them that I can do advocacy, as God has given me fitness."

"As I am today, I’m not suffering from High Blood Pressure (HBP), diabetes or anything. God has prepared me to go into advocacy."

The octogenarian disclosed that he is the first to acquire a law degree in his family, and the third in his hometown of Aboh, Delta State.
