I come from Ondo town, Ondo State. One of the priceless blessings of growing up in the village, particularly under the guardianship of both my paternal and maternal grandmothers is the in-depth understanding of the Yoruba philosophy as it relates to day to day life and I tell you the Yoruba Philosophy as revealed in its many adages and folklores have unusual impact on my personal philosophy today, particularly where it agrees with the Holy Bible.

My people liken an ingrate to a robber. My people say ‘the invincibility of a General in a battle lies in the impenetrable loyalty and deftness of his men.’ I borrow from that Yoruba Philosophy today to say the invincibility of a Legal Enlightenment and Social Development (LEAD™) organization like The Taiwo AKINLAMI Academy lies in the unalloyed loyalty of our clients and friends, who have consistently found our Legal Enlightenment and Social Development (LEAD™) Solutions acceptable and helpful in the fulfilment of part or whole of their objectives.

On Saturday, January 28, 2017, we held our annual Appreciation Seminar. The purpose of our Appreciation Seminar, which does not cost us little to put together in terms of financial and human resources is to celebrate our precious clients in the preceding year (2016) for granting us the rare privilege of working with them, particularly in the areas of providing cutting-edge and African-Sensitive but globally-relevant solutions in the areas of Child Rights/Protection, CHILDHOOD PRESERVATION and Family Strengthening.

The 2017 Appreciation Seminar, which held at our LEAD™ Haven and Research Crib, Lagos in two sessions, hosted representatives from most of the organizations we worked with in 2016.

At the Appreciation Seminar, I, The Preacher shared with our precious clients and friends, Child Rights/Protection, CHILDHOOD PRESERVATION and Family Strengthening

The Taiwo AKINLAMI Way

CUTTING-EDGE Solutions for Africans by Africans

The delivery was fresh from the oven of our Legal Enlightenment and Social Development Research Laboratory and our clients and friends savoured and attested eloquently to same in personal discussions and in the Evaluation Forms completed. I think we achieved our lead objectives:

To show appreciation to our clients and friends with our most precious possession, our tested contents;
Supplying our clients and friends with critical and current Subject Matter Information, which puts them ahead in the New Year in matters of Child Rights/Protection, CHILDHOOD PRESERVATION and Family Strengthening as it relates to their day-to-day operations.
Our Appreciation Seminar done and dusted, I decided to again declare this first Sunday of the month of February, our Gratitude Sunday to clients and friends, who made 2016 a glorious and memorable year for us. And what we have just done today on our Gratitude Sunday is to celebrate by doing The Taiwo AKINLAMI Academy Roll Call of Honour of our 2016 Clients:
