Former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) General Secretary, Mazi Afam Osigwe has become one of the first appointees of NBA President-elect, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN.

Osigwe is among the 17-member Transition Implementation Committee (TIC) unveiled today by Maikyau in preparation for his assumption of office as substantive NBA President.

A statement signed by Maikyau noted that the committee is in “furtherance of the forthcoming inauguration of the newly elected National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and the need for a seamless handover.”

CITY LAWYER gathered from unimpeachable sources that Maikyau held his first meeting with members of the incoming National Executive Committee on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 on the eve of the Annual NBA-SPIDEL Conference. He had promised to run an all-inclusive administration, even as he urged the incoming National Officers to proffer ideas towards success of the regime.

Another meeting held afterwards, with First Vice President Linda Bala presiding, as Maikyau was away to Kano for the burial of deceased senior lawyer, Nassir Abdu Dangiri SAN.

Below is the full text of the statement issued by NBA Publicity Secretary-elect, Mr. Habeeb Lawal.
