The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Security Agencies Relations Committee, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN has urged lawyers to play crucial roles in the growth of the legal profession.

Speaking as a Special Guest of Honour at the February monthly meeting of the Surulere Lawyers’ Forum (SLF), Gadzama who is also the Chairman of the Mentoring Committee of the Body of Benchers for Young Lawyers, urged the members to encourage unity among lawyers.

Below is the statement made available to CITY LAWYER.

Surulere Lawyers’ Forum Elder, Chief J-K GADZAMA, SAN presides over 2022 annual cutting of Valentine Cake.

It was a joyous homecoming for Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN when he attended the February monthly meeting of the Surulere Lawyers’ Forum (SLF) on February 16, 2022 as an elder and oldest member of the Forum. Recall that Chief Gadzama, SAN was formerly admitted as a member of SLF last year after the Forum welcomed him with open arms.

It is important to state that SLF whose membership cuts across tribes and tongues in Nigeria was founded in 2006 by its pioneer Chairman, Hon. (Chief) V. U. K. Iyanam (former Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Akwa-Ibom State) and consists of legal practitioners who live and or practice within Surulere. SLF is one of the well-coordinated and organised lawyers’ fora in Nigeria and has been growing in leaps and bounds since its establishment.

In his remarks at the meeting, Chief Gadzama, SAN encouraged members to be united in the pursuit of the goals and objectives of SLF as the Forum can achieve a lot when in unity. He also implored them not to relent in playing their critical roles in the affairs of the Nigerian Bar Association both in Lagos State and at National level. The elder statesman was thereafter invited to coordinate the cutting of cake in celebration of members whose birthdays fall within the month of love.

In attendance with Chief J-K Gadzama, SAN was Mr. Mela Nunghe, SAN, Messrs John Unachukwu Austin Esq, former publicity Secretary of the NBA and Oluniyi Adediji Esq, Partner, J-K Gadzama LLP, Lagos Office.
