It gives me great pleasure to felicitate with the Chairman, Mr. Emmanuel Tayo Ogunjide; Executive Committee, Leaders and entire members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Gwagwalada Branch on your 10th anniversary celebration holding today in Abuja.

I have no doubt that the Branch has achieved significant milestones within this short but eventful 10-year period, and has positioned itself as one of the leading NBA branches to reckon with. This is no mean feat.

As you celebrate, I urge you to continue to build on the legacies of past Leaders of the branch and promote programmes that enhance the welfare of members and Nigerians at large.

Let me also congratulate the jurists and stakeholders who are today being installed as the Doyens of the Eagle Bar, namely Prof. Jam Agbonika, retired Hon. Justice Balami, and Prof. (Mrs.) Josephine Agbonika SAN. This is an uncommon honour and a validation of your mentoring and invaluable contributions to the growth of Gwagwalada Bar.
