RAUF BALOGUN ESQ SERVS HUMANITY IN ALL DAYS
To some of us, man is respected by their historical rout, where he is coming from and how he makes the trip to the point he is noticed. We always want to be favoured by history, that makes me to dream for a greater country and a safer society where egalitarian is the order of the day, this principle is behind how we act and react as a comrade, a unionist and aspirant of bar and that account for how we unintentionally have many electrons around us who believe in our activities and words. Our hero, If it is measured by vibrancy there are many of vibrant lawyers in the respected world of legal profession, however, Rauf Balogun Esq, an exceptional legal practitioner who spear headed the most respected professional organization in the country, the NBA, Ilorin branch, left behind an indelible mark.
Without looking back, he puts on his wig and gown and matched to the court to defend the plight of Nigerian students when we were unjustifiably trapped by government. Funny enough, his colleague have identified him as defender of the poor students and students' activists. I knew this when we contacted one of leading law firm in Ilorin for an urgent legal rescue mission, knowing quit well that the poor students has no money, we were advised to meet the defender of masses, R O. Balogun.
He has worn many students' awards and has assisted numerous students' organizations legally and financially on many occasions. R. O Balogun is indeed a hero in the students' realm and our world will ever recommend him for every responsible leadership position in any organization including the NBA.
A memorable day was when he won the legal battle for the castrated students in Ilorin, when he freed our comrades from the unjustifiable shackle of the government, we could not control our joy, in good number, the crowd lifted him up, a classic celebration he got, that which he deserved, that which is meant for men of honour.
Ballo! You are a leader; you deserve to climb high in the leadership pedestal so that our world can benefit directly from your benevolent and charismatic leadership prowess. The world of future leaders, the realm of Nigerian students recommends you for leadership position in Nigeria. As the National President of National Congress of Nigerian Students NACONS, I made my statement already, a new one, and my history is a corroboration of the facts stated above.
