- CELEBRATING FEMI FALANA AT 62
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) wishes to celebrate a greatNigerian patriot, lawyer and defender of workers’ and people’srights; Comrade Femi Falana, as he turns sixty-two!
Femi Falana since his student days has been in the fore front ofthe crusade for the emancipation of the Nigerian people. As astudent, even before he became a lawyer, Femi Falana was inthe habit of bailing fellow student union activists who gotarrested by the State.
Femi Falana has always broken through the dread of silence tospeak out against oppressive policies and actions of those inthe corridors of political power. His interventions as a humanrights crusader and activist transcend ethnic, religious andpolitical sentiments and have kept successive governments inNigeria on their toes.
First, as a Senior Advocate of the Masses (SAM) and later as aSenior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) with an illustrious careerpedigree, Comrade Femi Falana is a lawyer’s delight and athorough bred professional. His commitment to pristineprinciples establishes his legacy as one of Nigeria’s *nesthuman rights crusader and defender.
In tandem with his avowed commitment to the liberation of theNigerian State from retrogressive forces, Comrade Femi Falanais a long-standing ally of the Nigeria Labour Congress. He hasbeen with us in so many of our campaigns for social justice,equity and national renewal. To describe him as an abidingfriend of Nigerian workers would only betray our struggle withthe right adjectives.At sixty-two years, the Nigeria Labour Congress wishes ourerudite and eminent partner in the struggle for workers’ and
