In a viral video, an unidentified new lawyer prostrated before his mother in full robe to express his gratitude to his supportive mother.
The new lawyer became emotional during the Nigerian Law School’s call-to-bar ceremony in Abuja on Wednesday, prostrating before his mother and thanking her tearfully.
The ceremony marks the induction of new lawyers into the legal profession following their Bar final exams in May.
His mum, however, kept saying “It is well” while asking him to stand up from prostration.
No fewer than 1,507 graduating students from the Nigerian Law School were called to bar at the event organised by the Body of Benchers.
While 1,501 of the lawyers are fresh graduates, the six others are from the previous call.
