The Akure Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association held its Law Week in Akure, Ondo State. This year’s theme was on “National Interest and the Rule of Law”.
The event was attended by both members of the Akure Branch and other distinguished lawyers from across the country, including Mr Olumide Akpata (formerly Chairman of the NBA Section on Business Law).
Mr. Akpata felicitated with the Akure Branch for curating the hugely successful event and emphasised the role of the NBA in strengthening the rule of law as the bedrock of the country’s constitutional democracy.
Mr. Akpata highlighted the responsibility of lawyers in nation-building, especially in defending the constitutional rights of the masses and providing guidance on issues of national discourse.
Mr. Akpata also visited the Law Centre of the NBA Akure Branch which is currently under construction.
He donated 1 Million Naira towards completion of the building.
When it is completed, the Law Centre will serve as a resource centre for both members of the Akure Branch of the NBA and the general populace at large.
The Branch was thankful for Mr Akpata’s gesture and commended him for his consistent commitment and contributions to the development of the NBA.
