Dear colleagues of the NBA-YLF, I received with satisfaction and joy, the news of the appointment of your members as officers of the ÑBA-Young Lawyers Forum (YLF) Caretaker Committee and Advisory Board, by the NBA-NEC, to pilot the affairs of the Forum for a period of 6 months. Please accept my congratulations. Knowing the penchant of President Olumide Akpata for excellence, I am certain that all those elected were carefully chosen because he had seen or received news of them exhibiting excellent traits of leadership and responsibility. I congratulate them and I congratulate you all.
The Young Lawyers Forum represents the future of the legal profession. It is a well-crafted platform where legal luminaries are properly drilled and groomed for the challenges of leadership and growth in the legal profession, I, therefore, urge you all, members of this noble committee to seize this massive opportunity to write your names in gold. Consider it a privilege to lead your peers, lead in humility and give your best to the service of young colleagues and the legal profession in general.
I wish you the very best as you render selfless service.
Long live the NBA-YLF!!
Long live the NBA!!!
