Paul Usoro, SAN, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, (NBA) has promised to make public the names of legal practitioners whose names have been struck off the roll of legal practitioners, as well as the NBA report on the irregularities witnessed in Osun Governorship Election.

Mr. Usoro made this promise while reacting to the observations made by some members of NBA-NEC at the just concluded NEC meeting held at the NBA Secretariat, Abuja, on the 6th day of December, 2018.

TNL gathered that the Onitsha Branch Chairman had argued that names of those who have been struck off the Roll of Legal Practitioners be made public, particularly, to the Branches where they belong. He had given this opinion in response to the report made by the Chief Prosecutor that 9 lawyers were recently struck off the Roll for professional misconduct.

Former NBA President, O.C.J Okocha, SAN, also suggested that the NBA report on the irregularities witnessed in Osun Governorship Election be made public, reacting to the findings made by the committee.

The President promised that names of such persons will be published in Newspapers, and that the Data Capture-Project of the NBA that his administration is working on will also help to fish out such fake lawyers.

The NEC further commended the NBA President for achieving a seamlessly paperless NEC Meeting, stating that materials were uploaded and sent to everyone well ahead of time and were accessed by all easily.

However, the NEC frowned at the conduct of the 2018 Annual General Conference (AGC), in that, conference papers have up till date not been received by members despite the App and Website created for the said 2018 Annual General Conference(AGC). This observation was made in response to the AGC report presented by Dr. George Etomi.

Following the observations made, the NBA President suggested the setting up of a committee for the 2019 Annual General Conference, which was approved by the NEC members.

The NEC members at the ongoing NEC meeting of the Nigerian Bar Association has approved the early appointment of the members of the 2019 Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP).

This came after the 2018 Chair of TCCP, Mr George Etomi, gave his report and lawyers pointed out that it was not really a success.

By a motion moved by Mr Abimbola, Chair of Epe branch, who attributed it to lack of time for preparation and time to organise the conference, the NEC members approved that the NBA President Constitute the 2019 TCCP before the next meeting.

NEC members also opined that members of the NBA who pay for Annual General Conference (AGC) should have exclusive access to the conference while non-registered members should be denied the privilege of watching on the TV.

They also suggested that rather than broadcast the conference live on TV free of charge to members and at a great cost to NBA, the conference should be broadcasted on NBA website at a fee to members who are not registered for the AGC.

Furthermore, the NBA President did not make a review of his plan for the bar without promising to give special attention to the welfare of young lawyers.

He informed NEC of his plan to constitute the Young Lawyers Forum which was approved by the Council.

The NBA President, Paul Usoro, SAN, finally received a standing ovation from the NEC members after the presentation of the PRESIDENTIAL SPEECH; the speech was thereafter accepted and adopted by the NEC.
