In a letter of protest which was approved at the monthly general meeting of the branch, the key issues raised by the members where:
- Setting up of conference planning committee for the AGC 2017 without the approval of the NBA NEC in violation of Section 11(2) of the NBA constitution.
- Constituting conference planning committee to organize the AGC without the knowledge and input of the hosting branch.
- Nomination of legal practitoners to serve and represent the Association on the Body of Benchers without prior approval of the NBA NEC in violation of Section 7(5)(b) of the Constitution.
