Along with dignitaries from all walks of life, members of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) Nigeria turned out in their numbers to grace the valedictory session of Hon. Justice Mary Peter Odili who bowed out of the Supreme Court of Nigeria on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
Mary Ukaego Peter Odili, the third woman to ascend the Supreme Court bench in Nigeria is the pioneer Chairperson of FIDA Nigeria Rivers state.
From a lowly Magistrate Grade 3 in 1978, Justice Odili, daughter of a former Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Owerri Branch, Eze Bernard Nzenwa, rose to the highest court in the land — the Supreme Court of Nigeria — in 2011.
