"Dear colleagues and stakeholders, Today, February 7, 2018 marks the onset of yet another phase of service in our societal record. The beginning of a new dawn in the history of the Law Students’ Society. I am grateful firstly to God, the giver of life as well as to the entirety of the Law students for the confidence reposed in me.

At this vantage point of our existence, let me restate my undying commitment to the service of the Law Students’ Society through the instrument of commitment and dedication modeling as an advocate of leadership for the good image of the society. The days of leadership of words begging actions are indeed dead and buried and may the sleeping dog of administrative mediocrity never wake up.

As president, I align in quick accordance with unison of thoughts of the 2017/2018 Executive council that we are on a journey, a journey to a better Law Students’ Society and our interest is singularly towards ensuring the progressive march of the Law Students’ Society.

In the occasion of being sworn in as the President of this great society, I congratulate the leadership of the Law Students Representative Council and much more than ever foresee a vast administrative synergy in societal leadership upholding the progress that is inherent in unity and objectivity.

In this administrative year, I, as President reassure the generality of law students of the undying zeal to run an all-inclusive administration devoid of undue political favoritism or segmentation while placing pomposity on merit, delivery and productivity. These commitments then birth a clarion call to all and sundry to ensure all hands are placed on deck to ensure the smooth running of the administration. Similarly, we are ready to operate an open secretariat scheme which would timeously welcome all forms of ideas and innovations which would move our society a notch higher in the ladder of greatness.

It is a firm belief that with our due commitment colliding with an unflinching societal cooperation devoid of any administrative clog, we shall move the Law Students’ Society forward.
Long Live the Law Students’ Society."
