Preparations for the 2023 Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Annual General Conference reached a major milestone yesterday with the unveiling of the conference logo and registration portal by NBA President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN.

Maikyau also announced the conference theme as “GETTING IT RIGHT: Charting the Course for Nigeria’s Nation Building.” The conference will hold at MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja between August 25 and September 1, 2023.

The NBA President stated that it is important for the association to get it right, adding that Nigeria has all the resources to be a successful nation.

Noting that the association had carefully selected an array of competent members led by former NBA General Secretary Afam Osigwe to organize a fitting conference, Maikyau said: “The NBA must take the lead to get it right; we have to get it right in everything we do because we are blessed with all the potentials we will need to get it right.

“It is for us to find it; It is for us to discover it; It is for us to take the lead in providing leadership and providing direction to the people of this country.”

Maikyau then unveiled the conference logo and portal to kick-start registration by delegates.

Speaking earlier, Osigwe emphasized the need for lawyers to take advantage of the Early Bird window to register for the conference, saying: “The early bird is not going to be extended; once we get to the end, we move on. There will be no ‘abeg.’ “

Osigwe noted the need for cooperation from NBA members in order to have a seamless Annual General Conference, urging members to support the efforts of the AGC Planning Committee (AGCPC) through sponsorships.

Among those who were present at the hybrid unveiling ceremony were NBA General Secretary, Mr. Adesina Adegbite; NBA First Vice President, Mrs. Linda Bala; AGCPC Alternate Chairperson, Mrs. Oyinkan Badejo-Okusanya; AGCPC Secretary, Laura Alakija, and Mrs. Nkiru Okeke who represented the ICT Consultants, Crystal Digital.
