Olumide Akpata

Senate President Ahmad Lawan congratulated Olumide Akpata on his election as President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Lawan also congratulated the other newly elected members of the executive and all the members of the Association for the good development of their elections.

The Senate President noted that Akpata and his team had convinced their fellow scholars that they possess the experience, integrity, and ability to lead their revered Association and must now strive to meet high expectations.

He described the NBA as a pillar of democracy given the fundamental role of the legal profession in guaranteeing order and justice in the government system.

Lawan says the National Assembly, and particularly the Senate, hopes to work with the NBA under his new leadership to strengthen the rule of law and the administration of justice in Nigeria.

“The need for cooperation between the National Assembly and the NBA is even more compelling now in light of the impending constitutional amendment process upon which the appointed Parliamentary Commission is ready to explode as soon as Parliament resumes the current recess.

“At the National Assembly we will count on input from members of the public and, in particular, from respected members of the bar association in efforts to fine-tune our constitution,” Lawan said.

The President of the Senate, wishing Akpata and his team a successful term, ordered the new NBA leaders to continue promoting the principles of their noble profession for the good of our country.
