Muyiwa, it is a year now that you have departed from this world. It is still a shock to me. May your soul rest in peace. Amen.

Muyiwa, I remember those days I helped you campaign for the position of National General Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, using just my phone to send text messages to fellow Lawyers, as far back as 2012. Thereafter, from time to time, you called me to know if I am fine. I miss your regular Calls of 2012, to be candid! If I had known that you would depart this Earth in 2019, I would have just insisted on hearing from you continuously till you left this World.

Muyiwa Olowokure, it beats me hollow to learn that you left at this time, and worse still, without the slightest hint that you were ever sick as the News Report convey. I saw the news of your demise on the internet about three weeks ago, when I was in my usual research mood, looking for something else. I got confused initially because I simply refused to believe it for the first three days.

E no go better for satan. Oh yes!

Muyiwa, Muyiwa, Muyiwa, oh no! After everything, na like this you take waka from this World, ehn? God have mercy!. Amen. May your Soul rest in peace. Amen!

Death, a price we all got to pay, when to pay we don't know but its important to live a life worthy of celebration. Though, we grief at your passing, we celebrate you and bless God for what you were able to achieve. Taking solace in the life after death and our meeting at Jesus feet. We pray for the family you left behind that the holy spirit will comfort and console them. Sweet dreams brother.
*FGGC, Sagamu.

OO,
It's difficult to say goodbye because you were such an exceptionally good man in a country in which that species is rare.
You were one of the best people I knew or worked with, a steady man in an unsteady country.
You believed in our country, in the innate goodness of its people & in the need to better its leadership. 
You lived it every day.
We still had so much more left to do.
You set pretty high standards in everything & had a temperament and insight that made the most complicated things easy.
You had a capacity to see the essence of everything & to see humour in most things.
Unlike most Nigerians, you did not take yourself too seriously & that meant you earned the right to be taken very seriously.
Clearly, the good Lord took you very seriously too; that's why He has chosen to you home early. We bow to His will and than Him for sending you our way for these few years.
We'll treasure memories of the good you did & the joys of the positive legacies you left.
Your premature departure may make us all the poorer but your legacies should make us richer.
Travel safe, my brother. #FareTheeWell!

I actually found out last night just by chance and it came as a shock to us all at our NIGERIA SPURS GROUP which is for supporters of Tottenham Hotspur FC. He was one of our great members and we are all devasted by the loss. Sleep well sir and God give your family the strength to bear the loss. COYS!

his Life

Mr. Olumuyiwa Olowokure was called to Nigerian Bar in 1986 and had practised law in Kaduna, where he did his National Youths Service Corps, (NYSC).

After four years of learning the ropes in the reputable law firm of Paul Usoro and Co, he established his firm in Kaduna, where he developed a reputable practice with emphasis on immigration, taxation, insurance, servicing international development organisations and more recently pre-election matters and election petitions.
He had a highly successful tenure as Chairman of Kaduna Branch, as Chairman, he led the Branch to host one of the most successful and seamless conferences in the annals of NBA history. As the Kaduna State Coordinator of ‘Project Swift Count’ he represented NBA as State Coordinator in a coalition of civil society organisations that officially observed the 2011 general elections.
He also contested for the position of General Secretary of the NBA in 2012, but lost.”
Late Olowokure was indeed a respected senior of the Bar.

Olumuyiwa Olowokure (OO) our former Legal Adviser at USOSA (Unity Schools Old Students Association), he was also VP of the FGC Maiduguri Old Students. OO was also a past-Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Kaduna Branch. An incredibly good man, gone for good. May the Heavens be kind in judgement & grant his soul eternal rest.
