There’s always been this notion that people have about lawyers. I remember my old friend telling me once, “my son ,you’re a very bright child and I know you’ll go far. Whatever you choose to do,please avoid lawyers..” In other words, I should never aspire to go into the law profession. I’m not an enemy of lawyers,but I don’t patronise them either.
My perception however took another dimension when I met this young Law student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka. He’s the type of person you just can’t afford not to like. He has this sincerity of purpose, and openness that reached down to his character. After reading this notice( below) released by the management, I came to a conclusion that all lawyers cannot be thieves and liars,if we could have more of the likes of Esq. Mike in the profession…

On Tuesday 12th day of September 2017, a young lady in company of her three friends came to Unizik to buy the Post UTME form(Screening form).
