Former Secretary of the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA), Mrs. Cordelia Eke has been appointed as a member of the newly constituted NBA National Remuneration Committee.

A notice titled “NOTICE OF CONSTITUTION OF THE NBA NATIONAL REMUNERATION COMMITTEE” and personally signed by NBA President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN “recalled that at the National Executive Council meeting of the NBA held on 7 December 2023, the NBA Renumeration (sic) Implementation Committee made recommendations inter alia, for the establishment of the NBA Renumeration (sic) Committee referred to in paragraphs 10, 11 and 12 of the Legal Practitioners Renumeration (sic) (for Business, Legal Service and Representation) Order, 2023.”

It noted that “In addition to such other duties as may be assigned by the President or NEC, the Committee shall undertake the responsibilities outlined in the Remuneration Order and shall within 30 days from the date of its inauguration, come up with guidelines to regulate the activities of the National and Branch Remuneration Committees as provided under the Remuneration Order.

“To ensure effectiveness in the execution of its functions, the Committee shall have the power to delegate the investigation of any complaint to the Remuneration Committee of the Branches which shall hereafter be constituted in accordance with Paragraph 11(3)(b) of the Remuneration Order.”

Maikyau thanked Mrs. Eke and other members “for accepting this call to serve our noble Association and enjoin us all to accord them the cooperation needed to deliver on their mandate.”

CITY LAWYER recalls that Mrs. Eke recently urged that “we must do our best to give life to the NBA NEC’s proposal with respect to the remuneration of Lawyers in order to cater to the welfare of younger colleagues. Indeed, we must be our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.”

She has held several high-profile positions within the NBA, aside from being a ranking Director at the Rivers State Ministry of Justice.

A cerebral text writer and Bar Leader, Mrs. Eke was a member of the NBA Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP) in 2018 and Secretary of the NBA Electoral Reform Committee between 2022 and 2023. Earlier in 2020, she was appointed into the highly sensitive position of Secretary of the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA), having held sway as Council Member of the NBA Human Rights Institute (NBA-HRI) between 2017 and 2018. She was also the Secretary of NBA Port Harcourt Branch between 2016 and 2018.
