SPIDEL’S FATE TO BE DECIDED FEB 29 AS NBA-NEC MEETS IN JOS
The fate of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Section on Public Interest and Development Law (SPIDEL) will be decided on February 29, 2024 when the National Executive Council of the association meets in Jos, Plateau State.
This follows the issuance of a formal notice on the forthcoming meeting by the NBA leadership.
CITY LAWYER recalls that there has been a face-off between the SPIDEL leadership and NBA President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN, leading to a ban on SPIDEL activities by Maikyau.
While the NBA President accused SPIDEL of “undermining” his leadership, the Section fired back, alleging that Maikyau has stalled several planned initiatives aimed to promote the rule of law and public interest.
Below is the full text of the notice.
