Thirty-two years after leaving school, according to the Sun News, members of the 1986 Law Class of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) reunited in Lagos recently.
According to the Sun News, the event which was held on the 14th of December 2018, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ikeja, attracted a long list of dignitaries.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, was the keynote speaker of the event and was duly represented by Dr. Aina Salami, who is the founder and chairman of Juli Pharmacy. Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi chaired the event.
It was made known that the 1986 class has produced state governors, deputy governors, traditional rulers, judges (home and abroad), ministers, clergymen, senior military officers and other eminent positions in both public and private sectors and who have contributed immensely to the growth and development of Nigeria.
The chairperson of the reunion committee, Chief Lizzy Nwagbara, expressed so much joy at the reunion party.
“This reunion event is a celebration occasion. We are grateful to God for granting us life and grace to gather once more in our lifetime, after 32 years of graduating from University of Lagos in 1986.
“The idea to have a reunion event has been discussed over the years but, recently, the six senior advocates in our class took proactive steps to provide basic funds, which eventually lifted the spirit of a possible event and here we are today. The contributions and responses by our class members both home and abroad have been unparalleled and overwhelming.
“You have all proven that we can work together, even after 32 years of being apart,” Nwagbara stated.
The president of the class, Mr. Shola Abidakun, stated that it was of great joy to see so many people 32 years after passing out of the school.
