A Lagos lawyer, columnist, essayist and human rights advocate, Sonnie Ekwowusi, has been appointed as Chairman, Human and Constitutional Rights Committee of the African Bar Association (AFBA).
A former deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State, Sonnie Ekwowusi is a Legal Practitioner & Notary Public. He is the Principal Partner, Sonnie Ekwowusi & Co. (Legal Practitioners & Notaries Public). He is a law graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. He bags LL.M Masters in Maritime and Commercial Law.
Impelled by the fragrant violations of human rights in Nigeria and Africa, Ekwowusi, for decades, has consistently been advocating that constitutional government derives its legitimacy from the consent of the governed and exists to secure the human rights of the governed.
