NBA PRESIDENCY: Kanu Agabi Throws Weight Behind Usoro

Nigeria’s former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Chief Kanu Agabi SAN has thrown his weight behind the ambition of Mr. Paul Usoro SAN to lead the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Eulogizing the prominent lawyer recently, Agabi said: “Paul Usoro, in spite of your great and numerous achievements you have remained simple and humble. As humble as you are, you give no one cause to take you for granted.

“You know the law and that is the source of your confidence. You have a studious disposition and that is how a lawyer ought to be. You are honest and courageous. And that is what the times in which we live now demand. A time will never come when we shall forget you. You are a remarkable man.”

Continuing, the former Attorney-General said: “May the Lord remember you for the labour that you have laboured. May he remember your dedication and steadfastness. May he reward your generosity and public spirit.

“May the Good Lord remember your greatness of heart and your courage. Paul, because you are a man of rank and position, I take the liberty to say that in spite of all the odds we shall celebrate. Because of men and women like you, we live in hope.”

On his inspiration for throwing his hat into the NBA Presidency ring, Usoro said: “I believe the NBA should be run in a transparent ground, that when you need an information it will be very easy to obtain that through the website. I believe that the financial statement should be prepared and published quarterly. It should not be a matter of speculation. It should be available to all the members of the association. With this, the members can easily say, ‘these are the streams of revenue that came in the last quarter, this is what we have in the bank, these are our investments.’ We should also have a budget that will be published.”
