Springers24: Hello @i_am_mzria Thank you for joining tonight. Being a legal practitioner, have you ever had conflicts of interest on the job. Like your firm defending a cause/client which is against your personal believe?
MzRia: No. Some methods don’t go down well with me though. Someone said I’m a sentimental lawyer.
@Olukayode_7: I have been trying to beat this traffic, anyways… Is ‘ending need’ a humanitarian/Humanist goal?
MzRia: As humans, no end can come to our needs. A humanitarian can only try to make life better not best.
Sringers24: Is there any difference between a solicitor and a barrister?
MzRia: In a layman’s language… In Nigeria, No. Outside the country, a solicitor does research while Barrister goes to court.
MzRia: That is on a wide margin. I can only hope that justice is manifestly seen to be done irrespective of the fact that he is a celebrity or that he has enemies. He is an human and should be treated as one.
Springers24: Being a humanist who believes in human capability to achieve great things, what is efficiency to you?
MzRia: This quote “Today I do, Tomorrow I will” Do your unimaginable best.
Springers24: What has been the most interesting case that you have worked on?
MzRia: I’d rather not speak… Confidentiality!
Springers24: Would you choose this profession again if you had the chance?
Olakayode_7: There is this saying that “Lawyers are Liars” what is your stand with this?
MzRia: It’s crazy! Some bad eggs do shitty stuffs that tarnish the image of the profession just to win their cases. If avoiding the truth is lying then most lawyers do lie. I hope that we will get to the point where we don’t have to lie. I hope!
Springers24: You mean you will not defend your client if they are wrong?
MzRia: The rule of the profession requires me to defend all my clients. I don’t have to lie, I’d probably avoid the truth by proving my case.
Springers24: Who is the messiest person you know?
MzRia: Ajewole Eunice Abosede. Dragged her to twitter yesterday… can’t find the handle
Springers24: What is the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?
MzRia: Best: Wrist Watch- Michael Kors. Worst: Milk
Springers24: With a new “smart” something coming out almost every day, what products amaze and astound you the most?
MzRia: I have and will always love anything from Apple. But with Huawei doing amazing work, I’m stuck. The future will decide.
Springers24: When did you screw everything up, but no one ever found out it was you?
MzRia: I don’t think I can ever be that lucky. I will definitely tell someone. I’m too emotional.
Olakayode_7: Life is filled with ups and downs, what’s is the craziest thing(s) you have ever done to safe your face?
MzRia: 1. I can’t pretend so I stay away. 2. Look for a favourable party to take the fall. 3. Fall sick naturally because my heart will fail me.
Springers24: What attracts you in a man?
MzRia: 1. Neatness! Gosh 2. Intelligence. 3. Fear of God. In that order because I believe that’s how I can perceive it.
Springers24: What are you most afraid of?
MzRia: Right now, losing my mum.
Springers24: God forbid! Not in 50years.
Springers24: Sport car or SUV?
MzRia: Sport car! Always sleek
Springers24: Your friend’s partner is tested positive for HIV while she is negative. Would you advise her to break up or carry on?
MzRia: Break it up! Both of them should know it’s not safe. She should do her best for him, stand by him and encourage him to survive each day. Don’t just do anything to get infected.
Springers24: What inspires you daily?
MzRia: Knowing GOD is still GOD!
Springers24: What topic could you give a 20-minute presentation on without any preparation?

Springers24: What food do you love that a lot of people might find a little odd?
MzRia: Pap! Can take it with my last breath.
Springers24: What’s your username on dating site?
MzRia: Lmao! I can’t survive that shit. I don’t have.
Springers24: What are some of your guilty pleasures?
MzRia: A lot of people will come for my ass!
Springers24: What wastes the most time in your day to day life?
