Venerated legal luminary, Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, has stated that he has put his life on the line in his quest to ensure social justice and peace in the country.

The distinguished lawyer and international peace crusader, who is also member of the National Bilingualism Commission was speaking while facing a group of journalists at the Nico Halle and Co Law Firm in Bonaberi, Douala IV Subdivision. 



During the exchange in Douala, media men had asked the multi- award-winning lawyer to make an evaluation of his over 30 years of leading role the area of peace crusading.

Ntumfor Nico Halle told reporters that for over three decades, he has put his life on the line in crusading for peace, fight corruption, xenophobia and other anti-social vices

Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle has become a household name due to his fight for social justice which has earned him several prestigious awards. 

He has bagged recognitions and honors from nations, international organisations, the press, civil society, traditional rulers and the church. 

Staying true to himself, Ntumfor Nico Halle says, he is not taking any of such recognitions for granted but sees them as blessings from God.

When questioned on what has kept him going this far, he maintained that his love for peace crusading emanated from the values his late father implanted in him.

"Peace is my mantra and my main stay. My father was a man of peace and he brought up his children in the ways of Lord. We did meditation every morning. He told his children that peace is the most precious asset for a person, a family and community. And that we should do everything to cultivate genuine peace," he said.

Having been groomed in Christian values, Ntumfor Nico Halle, believes that what Jesus Christ gave to his disciples when He ascended to the Father, was peace and that crusading peace is a noble thing.

The tough-talking Ntumfor Nico Halle has also maintained that his other source of inspiration comes from the people whose lives he has studied. 

He cited philosophers like Socrates, Plato, Voltaire; nationalists like Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln, who all shaped his zeal to promote a better society.

"The peace that Jesus gave to his disciples, is what enabled them to continue with the mission of spreading his messages to mankind. That is why, you can have all the resources in the world, if you don't have peace, you are nothing. If peace doesn't exist in your home, you cannot function or evolve,” he stated.

 

Violence weapon of weak

According to Ntumfor Nico Halle, peace is the weapon of the strong while violence is the weapon of the weak.

He has, however, insisted that peace does not exist in isolation but on a platform of love, integrity, honor, self-control, kindness, goodness and fear of Lord.

“Because of my upbringing, wherever you find me, there is justice, be it elections, in church, community in court. I don’t do it for myself because, we will all render account. I don't have kind words for people who are corrupt," he added.
