The National Executive Council(NEC) of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) held its quarterly meeting in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State on 23 March, 2023.

At the said meeting, NEC unequivocally condemned the tribal/ethnic bigotry, violence and intimidation of voters recorded during the just concluded general elections, particularly in Lagos State. NEC therefore demanded the arrest and prosecution of identified electoral offenders.

Further to the NBA President’s proposal, NEC also called for live broadcast of the election petition proceedings (particularly the presidential election petition) by volunteering media houses.

In order to stem quackery within the profession, NEC adopted and approved the NBA General Secretary’s proposal for the introduction of a new NBA Stamp with improved security features and car stickers with QR code for lawyers.

NEC considered the budget of the Annual General Conference Planning Committee (AGCPC) and approved same alongside the proposed 2023 Annual General Conference Fees which would see senior citizens (lawyers of 70 years and above) attend the conference for the first time, free of charge, and lawyers of 1 to 5 years call pay an early bird fee of N15,000.

The Communique is herewith attached for your reference.

Thank you and do have a good day.
