On behalf of the NBA Port Harcourt Branch, I congratulate Mr. Olumide Akpata on his election as the 30th President of the Nigerian Bar Association.
Mr. Akpata’s victory at the poll is no mean feat having contested with two eminently qualified presidential candidates and very respected Senior Advocates of Nigeria with equally appealing programmes of action.
Your victory at the poll is a manifestation of the preference and acceptance of your programmes of action and the desire of members of our great Association to see an all inclusive Bar that works for every member.
Therefore, your victory is indeed a victory for every member of Nigerian Bar Association. I have no doubt in my mind that you are aware of and prepared for the enormous task of delivering on your campaign promises and making the Bar work for all.
The NBA Port Harcourt Branch wishes to assure you of our commitment and support in ensuring that you succeed.
We pray God to grant you the wisdom and strength of character required in the onerous task of leading the Bar to a new and greater height.
Once more, congratulations.
Prince O. Nyekwere, Esq.
Chairman, NBA, Port Harcourt Branch.
