Okowa Tasks NBA on Professionalism, Crusade Against Corruption

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has called on the Nige­rian Bar Association (NBA) to always maintain professional standards and join in the cru­sade against corruption in or­der to make Nigeria a nation of achievers, as well as creator of wealth and entrepreneurship to the next generation.

Governor Okowa stated this at the NBA, Warri Golden Ju­bilee Celebration of the Call to Bar of the branch’s three icons, Thompson Joseph Onomigbo Okpoko (SAN), Alaowei Brod­erick Cherima Bozimo and Dr. Young O. Esombi at Warri.

Okowa, who was represent­ed by the Deputy Governor, Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, not­ed that the continued reliance on courts by those who seek justice has proven beyond reasonable doubt, that the law courts remain the hope of the aggrieved and, therefore, the bastion of democracy.

He said the topic of the lecture, “Persistent Problems In Litigation In Nigeria,” was quite apt and interesting.

He pointed out that the de­gree of access to courts deter­mines whether a potential liti­gant could file a lawsuit or not.
