Yinka Farounbi 

I can't still process this whole thing 

Just like that we lost one of NBA Ikeja branch finest gentlemen, one of our best Chairman, a good team leader and listener an humble personality. 

Mr.Farounbi was more of a family to than colleague, he was my number supporter, he got my back always and anytime I finish late from court, he offer to drop me in unilag during my masters he will take me to faculty of law,  when I lost my mum he was there for always, during my siblings wedding he was always present, during my mom's burial we was there,when I was ylf exco he supported me always, when I was vying to be welfare Secretary he was at the forefront of my campaign telling everyone that I was the best choice because I had served with him as ylf exco,and in various committee at branch level so I will deliver, 

Last nba conference in Lagos 2022 he was an active member of the planning committee, an astute bar man per excellent 

Indeed God knows best, because we would have love to have him here, but his ways are beyond human comprehension and he chooses to take his beloved yinka farounbi and gave him a well deserved rest. REST WELL MR.YINKA FAROUNBI
