GOODWILL MESSAGE TO NIGERIAN BAR ASSOCIATION IKOT EKPENE BRANCH ON THE OCCASION OF HER 2022 BAR WEEK
I heartily congratulate the Chairman and Members of the Nigerian Bar Association Ikot Ekpene Branch on the occasion of her 2022 Bar Week between 8th – 12th May, 2022.
The theme of the law week: “Strengthening the Pillars of Democracy Through Effective Legislation” is aptly chosen given the gap between our laws and their implementation.
The frequency with which our laws undergo review is a testament to their ineffectiveness. There is therefore the urgent need to enact legislation that will fill the obvious gaps in the polity and thereby promote good governance.
I urge all participants to take advantage presented by this opportunity and come up with recommendations that will discourage the sort of ineffective legislations that have held us back for so long.
Once more, congratulations and I wish you all a rewarding and impactful law week.
Jonathan Gunu Taidi, Esq.
