Remembering Bola Ige on 91st Posthumous birthday

Pam Jenny and BJ Bobby/

He was popularly called ‘Cicero’ during his lifetime as he had a way with words, which was always a delight to listen to.
Late former Attorney General of the Federation, Chief Bola Ige, SAN would have been 91years old today.

Born James Ajibola Idowu Ige on September 13th 1930, he was a lawyer and politician.
His birthplace was Esa Oke, a town, in the old Oyo State (now in Osun State). Ige left Kaduna and headed south to the Western region at the age of 14. He studied at Ibadan Grammar School (1943–48), and then at the University of Ibadan. From there, he went to the University College London, where he graduated with a law degree in 1959. He was called to the bar in London’s Inner Temple in 1961.

He established Bola Ige & Co in 1961, and later became a Senior Advocate of Nigeria. He became well known in the country for his oratory prowess, as well as his advocacy work on civil rights and democracy. Ige’s faith was Christianity. Uncommonly, Ige spoke all the three major Nigerian languages, Yoruba, Ibo and Hausa fluently. He wrote several books, and an anthology of articles and tributes about him was published shortly after he was gruesomely murdered on December 23rd, 2001.

Years on, he still lives in the hearts of many whp remember him for his forthrightness, oratory and Amiable disposition.
