Greetings NBA Bwari, I am delighted to send you my felicitations on the ocassion of your 2022 Law Week tagged: “The State of the Nation: Where are the Lawyers” which is scheduled for the 3rd to the 5th of June, 2022.
I am particularly gratified at the theme as it shows that you have chosen to look inwards and to question the role we as members of the legal profession, have to play in nation building.
Sadly, the very many lapses of governance which have resulted in the deplorable state of the nation has the finger prints of a few members of the Bar. It is on this note that I find very important therefore your choice of theme. I hope that at the end of these deliberations, we can truthfully sieve out areas where members of the Bar have failed the nation and hopefully encourage ourselves to do better.
Welldone NBA Bwari for such a wonderful theme.
To the elders officers and membes of NBA Bwari, I say may your 2022 law week be a huge success.
LINDA ROSE BALA, ESQ
