â€˜Today marked another milestone in the
life of MrsÂ @ibinabofiberesimaÂ when the
Appeal Court sitting in Lagos considered the appeal filed by her
lawyers, and granted her bail from Kirikiri prisons pending the
determination of her appeal at the Supreme Court. Her lawyers had
argued and convinced the learned Justices that Mrs Ibinabo had
conducted herself in good manners since the commencement of the
case and had never jeorpadized proceedings by her action or
conduct. Her exemplary life despite her social status is a symbol
Many of our colleagues had joined hands in prayers and called on God to intervene to save the life of our dear AGN President. We are united in our purpose and resolve knowing that the accident was an unfortunate development which claimed the life of the deceased but was never deliberate action on the part of Ibinabo. Today, the saying that â€œGodâ€™s ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughtsâ€ has come true.Â
I want to use this opportunity to appreciate God for His mercy, grace and compassion upon Ibinabo. I thank our colleagues and the formidable team of lawyers who are fighting this case. I am optimistic that victory shall come the way of Ibinabo at the Supreme Court. I also thank family members of late Dr. Suraj Giwa that have shown clear disposition to clemency to Ibinabo knowing that life is a journey, it could be anyone tomorrow. As we continue to toe the path of justices and peace, we must note that God has the final say in all circumstances. This can only be Godâ€¦May Godâ€™s name be praised forever!Â #GodatworkÂ #Faithfulfather#AllpraisestoGodâ€™
