Buhari congratulates new NBA President, Olumide Akpata


President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday felicitated with Olumide Akpata on his election as the President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said he wished the NBA president success in the new position of leading Nigerian lawyers to chart a path of professional development and fulfilment.

Adesina said President Buhari trusted that as a lawyer of over two decades who had held several strategic positions in the legal association, Mr Akpata’s vast knowledge and experience in litigation, corporate world and engaging with government at different levels, would greatly benefit the Bar and, indeed, all Nigerians, who looked up to the learned fellows as crucial stakeholders in a modern democracy.

Adesina further stated that President Buhari assured the new leadership of the NBA of the continued cooperation of his administration in addressing the broad range of challenges and opportunities facing the legal profession and the country.
