Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN has reeled out a roadmap for lawyers in the run-up to the 2023 General Elections.

In a Christmas Message to NBA members made available to CITY LAWYER, Maikyau noted that “Our nation no doubt is passing through perilous times. The peace of the nation is greatly challenged.”

He urged lawyers to shun dishonesty and insincerity during the forthcoming elections, saying: “As we go into the New Year, 2023 and prepare for the forth coming general elections, let our conduct and participation in the exercise of our constitutional franchise in electing our leaders or representatives at all levels, be undergirded by honesty, sincerity, patriotism and the desire to build a nation that will be our pride.”

According to the NBA President, “The combination of our honest, purposeful, and sincere work as a people, with the discharge of our divine obligation to pray for our leaders for wisdom, courage and discernment, will no doubt lead us to the productive nation that we all desire to build.”

He declared: “Nigeria must succeed, Nigeria cannot fail under our watch, and I call on all Nigerians to brace up for the challenges ahead. Let us make the necessary sacrifices for the future of our nation.”
