Former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) presidential candidate, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN has urged NBA branch leaderships to be accountable and display positive leadership, adding that these attributes are the life wire of the legal profession.

Gadzama stated this while receiving a delegation of NBA Gombe Branch led by its Executive Committee in his Abuja law office.

The leading arbitrator and Chairman of the Mentorship Committee of the Body of Benchers (BOB) urged the Executive Committee not to relent in its role as branch officers who are expected to continually uphold the enviable standard of ethics and prestige for which the profession has become known.

He thanked the branch leadership “for always promoting the interest of the profession and for the courtesy visit.”

In his response, the leader of the delegation and NBA Gombe Branch Chairman, Mr. Haruna Yelma said the visit was “to identify with the Learned Silk who is one of our own.”

He thanked Gadzama for the warm reception accorded the delegation and the “invaluable words of wisdom,” and urged him not to be weary in supporting the branch.

He also commended the leading lawyer “for your continuous unwavering support and immense contributions to the Branch as well as the legal profession at large.”

CITY LAWYER gathered that the delegation had “fruitful discussions” with Gadzama before they parted.
