There was palpable excitement among delegates who took part in some of the early activities to herald the 2022 Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference.

Meanwhile, the eagerly awaited Opening Ceremony of the conference holds today at the prestigious Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

CITY LAWYER gathered from unimpeachable sources that both former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the new sensation in town, Mr. Peter Obi have confirmed their attendance at the conference.

Among the early activities that set the stage for the conference were Jumat and Church services, health walk, tree planting campaign and football tournament.

Many lawyers turned out for Health walk which started at Eko Atlantic City through Ahmadu Bello Way, Akin Adesola, to Adeola Odeku, ending again at Eko Atlantic City.

NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata led from the front in the fun-filled Health Walk which included dances, music, aerobics, and exercise.

Aside from the religious services, NBA branches have also been slugging it out to decide who will lift the coveted President’s Cup.

The tree-planting campaign was performed by Akpata under the watchful eyes of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) Chairman and NBA Lagos Branch Chairman, Mr. Ikechukwu Uwanna among others.

Meanwhile, Mr. Ifeanyichukwu Obiakor, a former Chairman of NBA Awka Branch, has commended the accreditation process, saying: “Excellent arrangements, very seamless. Your number is called and then we enter batch by batch and get the tags and materials.”

This was echoed by Ms. Uche Nwokolo of NBA Port Harcourt Branch IHS Legal Unit, who said: “In all honesty, I am very impressed with what I am seeing. I got here 6 pm; it was very fast. I received everything in less than 30 minutes. I am happy.”
