GOODWILL MESSAGE TO NIGERIAN BAR ASSOCIATION IKORODU BRANCH ON HER 2022 BAR WEEK
I felicitate with the Chairman, Executive Council Members and members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Ikorodu Branch on the occasion of her 2022 Bar Week on the theme: “Nation Building: Our Collective Responsibility.”
Our country attained independence on 1st October, 1960 with the promise of greatness, and universal optimism. Alas, 62 years later, the nation remains embroidered in numerous challenges that at times threaten every hope of its survival.
It is therefore heart warming that NBA Ikorodu Branch is determined to interrogate the issues militating against the growth of our nation and the vital roles we all can play in unraveling the complex issues that have kept us in perpetual motion without movement.
This platform presents another opportunity for us in the legal profession to identify the clogs in the wheel of our development as a nation and come up with workable solutions that will bail us out of stagnation.
I commend you all to utilize this rare opportunity for the benefit of our dear nation which seriously craves growth and development, and hereby wish you all fruitful deliberations and a positive outcome.
Jonathan Gunu Taidi, Esq.
NBA General Secretary (2018 – 2020)
