Justice Obande Festus Ogbuinya on his elevation unto the Judgeship of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

The high profile servant in the temple of justice and my Lord, Hon. Justice Ogbuinya, you have the perfect cutting edge in law interpretation as revealed in a role you played in setting aside a Federal High Court judgment against the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) in the case of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) versus Best Quality Products and Marketing Ltd to mention but a few.

My beloved brother from Ohaukwu local government area of Ebonyi State and eminent jurist, Hon. Obande Festus Ogbuinya, your exceptional judicial service at the bench in terms of in-depth analysis and judgement of cases without preference of any kind no doubt earned you this prestigious seat as a justice of the Apex court in Nigeria.

I am so delighted to share in your joy in this moment of your promotion not just because of our common genealogy but you have distinguished yourself as a renowned adjudicator with no traceable record of disciplinary issue or indictment of any sort.

The judicial pride of Ebonyi continue to be a shining example in the legal profession in Nigeria and beyond.

Congratulations and more feathers to your already feathered cap”.

By the sworn in ceremony, Justice Obande Ogbuinya has now assumed the highest ranking male judge from Igbo extraction, in the world.
