Ex-president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata has decided to step aside from a law firm, Templars where he served as Senior Partner.

The law firm, in a statement dated August 24, disclosed the former NBA President formally notified the other partners and management of the firm of his decision to participate in active politics.

Akpata noted that his decision to step aside is in line with the firm’s governance protocols.

The firm and Akpata agreed that he stepped aside from the firm with effect from Thursday, August 31, 2023.

The firm said this will enable him to fully focus on his project of contributing towards nation-building.

While thanking Akpata for the significant role he played in the growth of the firm, the firm said its clients will continue to be served by its over 100 lawyers led by twenty other partners (across different practice areas) working out of the Firm’s offices in Nigeria and Ghana.

Recall that Akpata recently joined the Labour Party (LP) in Edo State and expressed interest in contesting the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

Akpata while giving reasons for joining politics recently said he joined the political party because he was tired of complaining about Nigeria every day.

He added that he decided to take the plunge and tried to be the solution rather than continually agonising over the problem.
