The 62nd Annual General Conference, AGC, of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, would address concerns of leadership deficit in the country.
Making this known on Tuesday, the group of lawyers during a World Press Conference in Lagos, noted through NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata, that “It is necessary for us to be bold about transitioning to get to our destination.”
To herald the event, themed: ‘Bold Transitions,’ Akpata explained that the annual gathering would afford lawyers and the society to interrogate with issues of national life.
Speaking on some of the areas demanding transition, the President noted, “Even our democracy is in transition and how are we going to interrogate with the transition?”
The leadership boasted that over 13,000 lawyers have paid to register for physical attendance, indicating a renewed interest in the Bar’s activities.
An elated President, ready to relinquish the baton of leadership to a successor 10 days from now, Akpata said, “There’s a reawakening, our members are interested, for me, it is a fulfilling.”
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the NBA Technical Committee on Conference Planning, Mr. Tobenna Erojikwe, TCCP, reeled out various plans for the event.
The group assured of security of attendees and promised to give hybrid participants a worthwhile experience.
