Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi is the executive chairman of Juli Plc, the first indigenously owned/promoted company on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. Adelusi-Adeluyi has served in various positions in both the public and private sectors and is a leader extraordinaire.

His study of Pharmacy at the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), didn’t deter him from studying Law and graduating as the overall best student from the Nigerian Law School at the age of 47.

Since he embraced law practice, he has taken up several pro bono cases to support prisoners and the underprivileged in the society, through his legal firm as senior partner of Adelusi-Adeluyi & Co. The legal firm specialises in providing free legal aid to prisoners and other underprivileged persons.

In one of his interviews with pressmen, Prince Adelusi-Adeluyi said “I do pro bono legal practice only. It’s called pro bono publico – that is, for the good of the public.

“It involves getting people in the prisons freed, especially those who have been there for 10 years and longer and who have not had any opportunity of legal representation. They probably have not had court attendance for those ten years and I have learnt a lot. That gives me humility and makes me give gratitude to God to be able to help in such a small way.

“If you see humanity suffer so needlessly at that level, then who are you to say, “God, I asked for this and you didn’t give me that”? Those people suffering are also part of humanity.”
