CHIEF AJIBOLA ARIBISALA: AN "IROKO TREE LIZARD" SILK?

Is it a crime for a man to blow his own trumpet even stridently? Certainly no. But immodest, self-praise bordering on exaggeration is rather odd, if not offensive in genteel society and in conservative professions like law.

The Squib in one of her many peregrinations stumbled on the curriculum vitae of Chief Ajibola Aribisala SAN which document was backing the silk's recent application to become a Notary Public.

To say the least, the C.V has very interesting portions, which in our editorial view, should not serve as a template for emulation by other lawyers, especially impressionable younger ones at the bar who may mistake vice for virtue,simply because it comes from a distinguished senior practitioner.

Save for the address, telephone numbers, fax and e-mail address, the said C.V of Chief Aribisala SAN is wholly herein reproduced as it is and so all perceived deficiencies therein, are left as it were, unedited. So it is not a matter of the printer's devil being at work here.
