Fresh lawyers who made it through Law School this year celebrated their Call to Bar ceremony today at the International Conference Center, Abuja.
Dr. Sid's fiancée, Simi Osomo, was one of them, and he took to Twitter to congratulate her.
Hearty congrats Simi and to my kid sister too, Elsie.

This is quite disheartening.
The woman may have broken the law, by selling her wares in a prohibited area but the statement from Gov Oshiomole, that's not good at all.
'You are a widow! Go and DIE!!', despite her tears, cries, begging for mercy, begging for help. Wow!!
This is really heartbreaking!!
Incase you are wondering what happened, Gov. Oshiomole's task officers confiscated the weeping

In their latest move to put a stop to behaviour deemed 'immoral', the Police enforcing Islamic law in Kano state on Wednesday, destroyed 240,000 bottles of beer they had confiscated from trucks coming into the city.
According to AFP, the Sharia law enforcers called Hisbah, launched sweeping crackdowns in Kano since September, following a state government directive to cleanse the commercial state of “immoral” practices.
So, on Wednesday, a large bulldozer smashed the confiscated bottles to shouts of “Allahu Ahkbar” (God is great) from supporters outside the Hisbah headquarters in Kano.
Kegs containing more than 8,000 litres of a local alcoholic brew called burukutu and 320,000 cigarettes were also destroyed.
Kano’s Hisbah chief, Aminu Daurawa, at the bottle-breaking ceremony, said he had the ardent hope this will bring an end to the consumption of such prohibited substances. We hope this measure will help restore the tarnished image of Kano,” said Daurawa.
The 9,000-strong moral police force works alongside the civilian police but also has other duties, including community development work and dispute resolution.
Alcohol is typically easy to find in Kano, including at hotels and bars in neighbourhoods like Sabon Gari, inhabited by the city’s sizeable Christian minority. But the Hisbah boss vowed that this was set to change.
“We hereby send warning to unrepentant offenders that Hisbah personnel will soon embark on an operation into every nook and cranny of the state to put an end to the sale and consumption of alcohol and all other intoxicants,” Daurawa said.
Hello Laila, I'd be as brief as possible cos I desperately need to come out of this "little-shake" the best convenient way as possible.

I've got a complain that I think LBers and the whole of Nigeria should know. Hopefully this will get to the appropriate authorities and this disgraceful act would end immediately...
It's about the Nigerian police (specifically Rivers State Police)!
