I wish to congratulate the leadership and members of Surulere Lawyers Forum (SLF) on the historic elevation of the Forum to a full-fledged branch of the Nigerian Bar Association by the NBA National Executive Council (NBA-NEC) at its recent meeting in Ilorin, Kwara State.

This is a well-deserved achievement when viewed against the backdrop of your longstanding Bar activism and uncommon programmes which target the welfare of your teeming and active members.

Let me also put on record my deep appreciation to you all for the very warm reception you extended to me and the opportunity accorded me to address the Forum. Please be assured that I do not take this for granted.

While commending our indefatigable NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata for his foresight in creating the new branches, I urge you all to continue with your laudable goal of promoting human rights and rule of law as well as fostering the well-being of members.

AWLA President
