Bencher and former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) General Secretary, Mr. Jonathan Taidi has felicitated with the NBA Section on Legal Practice (NBA-SLP) over its recent Annual Conference held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

In a statement made available to CITY LAWYER, Taidi stated that the conference “could’nt have come at a better time given the challenges bedevilling the legal profession,” adding that “the speakers and panelists illuminated the pathway to give us a clear view of the future of the legal profession.”

Below is the full text of the statement.

I heartily congratulate the Chairman, Governing Council and Members of the NBA-SLP for a successful 2021 Annual Conference.

The conversation on “Law, Lawyers and the Next Generation” could’nt have come at a better time given the challenges bedevelling the legal profession occasioned by the extraordinary circumstances we live in.

As expected, the speakers and panelists illuminated the pathway to give us a clear view of the future of the legal profession.

It is my hope that the outcome of the deliberations at the Annual Conference will help fashion out policies that energize the practice of law in this country.

Congratulations again, as I wish all attendees and participants journey mercies.

Jonathan Gunu Taidi
Past General Secretary, NBA & Bencher

BREAKING: Usoro Wins, Obi Okafor ‘Withdraws’

Mr. Paul Usoro SAN may be declared winner of the hotly contested NBA Elections, even as his closest rival, Chief Arthur Obi Okafor SAN may have withdrawn from the race, citing “surges of votes in favour of Paul Usoro SAN.”

Sources close to the ECNBA Situation Room said Usoro may coast to victory with less than one hundred votes.

Meanwhile, there are strong indications that Mr. Jonathan Taidi has won the post of General Secretary with a wide margin.

The petition by Arthur Obi Okafor Campaign Directorate reads:

20th August 2018
The Chairman
NBA Secretariat

Dear Sir

This is to inform you that having reviewed the events leading up to and during the elections Arthur Obi Okafor SAN states categorically that he withdraws from this election and cannot accept the outcome of the result.

Inexplicable and strange surges of votes in favour of Paul Usoro SAN and the glaring incidences of hijacked votes makes it clear the result of this election cannot stand.

An acceptable participatory post election Audit of International standard will bear out our grievances in this regard.

Thank you

O.O.Olowokure Esq
For Arthur Obi Okafor SAN
