It’s always wonderful to hear news of Nigerians doing great things in the diaspora. We are very proud of Omolarami Oluwakemi Ayodeji, a 27 year-old Nigerian born Lawyer who was recently shortlisted for one of the most prestigious awards in the UK legal calendar, The Law Society Excellence Awards. Omolarami is the only Nigerian short listed for the awards and she was recognized in the Junior Lawyer of the Year category. In an exclusive interview with BN, she talks about her educational and professional journey and how she came about the nomination.
Omolarami Ayodeji-Akindiji also takes part in various TV programs! Omolarami Akindiji is back at it again. It was an honour to be asked to come on TV and talk about Immigration which is such a hot and emotive subject. As I was walking out of my house to make my way to the studio where the interview was to take place I tripped and sprained my ankle. My phone and my mac press powder went flying and landed smack in the middle of the road.
Like any 21st century woman would do I risk life and limb and crawled into the middle of the road to rescue my precious phone and make up before a car ran over them (Ladies I couldn’t save the press powder) but my phone was only had scratch and was fully functioning.
After all that whala, I usually would be like “it’s not that serious” and wobble my pretty behind back into the house. However; a small still voice said to me, “ call an Uber”. I am so glad I did, I got to go on TV and speak on a subject that matters to so many people. Moral of the story, if Plan A does not work, you still have 25 more letters and 364 more days in a year. The devil doesn’t know what to do with someone who does not give up, so make him jobless
Getting shortlisted for the award, according to the young solicitor, is indeed a rare priviledge. In her words, she is “humbly ecstatic” and “honoured” and gives much credit to her parents and younger brother. Without their “support, encouragement, prayers and belief I wouldn’t have gotten this far in my career. I am eternally greatly to and for them.” As a lawyer, she lives by the words: Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. Her dedication and passion as a young solicitor are indeed admirable and we celebrate her nomination and achievements. Well done Omolarami Ayodeji!
