Speaking at the virtual Workshop, the president of IYWLI, Engr. Akin Odumakinde said that “We are not here for ourselves but to empower others. Let us collaborate with ourselves but compete with our gifts. We all shine in our sphere of influence. Corruption is perpetuated by the people who lack vision.” Also speaking at the event, the Vice President of IYWLI, Mrs. Olayinka Odumakinde said “great leaders initiate movement and momentum for others. The highest call of leadership is helping other people live better lives and reach their potential. Make yourself the kind of person that others want to follow and add value to their lives.” FALAS is a pan-African student association that unifies all bodies of law students in Africa. They aim to build a united network of African law students who are equipped with the requisite exposure and knowledge and are committed to the development of the continent through connecting ideas, persons, and resources. We commend Amb. Umoh Edet an alumnus of IYWLI and International Director, FALAS IDOPP and the entire FALAS body for this worthy initiative.
