Dear NBA Women Forum (NBAWF), Bayelsa Branch, I write to felicitate with and congratulate you on your maiden meeting which comes up on Friday the 1st day of July, 2022.

The Women’s Forum of the NBA is an excellent platform for female members of the Bar to meet, to discuss the challenges we face in the profession and for the development of female members of the Bar. It is also a platform to raise awareness of the opportunities which abound for us in the profession.

The issues which confront us as female lawyers are peculiar to us and forums and meetings like this are avenues for the ventilation of these issues and for solutions to be presented. Our work as advocates for women rights and against gender based violence (GBV) is also of paramount importance. I am therefore delighted that the NBAWF has been set up in Bayelsa State under very able leadership and that you are meeting for the first time in July. I pray that this meeting will be exceedingly fruitful and the visions of the forum will be mightily actualised in Bayesla State.

Long live NBAWF Bayelsa and welldone!


Mrs. Linda Rose Bala
