April 23rd, 2022

A Nigerian barrister, Festus Ogun has expressed worry online after he discovered that the driver of an Uber he ordered is a lawyer like himself.

The driver seems to have informed him during the ride that he is a lawyer who decided to start working as a cabman.

According to Ogun, after the trip ended, he searched for the driver on the Nigerian Bar Association portal and saw that he’s a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

He said the fact that lawyer resorted to driving cab is proof things are not going the right way in the country.

The young lawyer wrote; ”My Uber driver yesterday is a lawyer. After payment, I went to search his name on NBA portal. Lo and behold, he’s a barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. It is not well.

I am not saying a lawyer doing Uber is bad. I’m simply saying learned counsel suspended law practice to focus on Uber. It is worrying.”
