The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section of Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL), Prof. Paul Ananaba SAN has unveiled the official logo for the much anticipated 2021 Annual Conference of the section.

The Annual Conference is scheduled to hold at the exquisite Jogor Centre, off Liberty Road, Ibadan between May 23 and 26, 2021. Registration has since started for the annual fiesta which is planned as the first major in-person conference by the NBA since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. Many lawyers have expressed excitement at the prospect of reconnecting with their peers since the last in-person Annual General Conference in Lagos almost two years ago.

Unveiling the official logo, Prof. Ananaba described it as “exquisite and bold,” adding that it “captures the thrust of our forthcoming conference which focuses on the Role of Public Interest in Governance in Nigeria.” It is recalled that Prof. Ananaba had during the just concluded NBA National Executive Committee (NBA-NEC) Meeting held at Uyo invited the NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata to attend the annual conference, an invitation he gladly accepted.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Conference Planning Committee (CPC) and former NBA 1st Vice President, Mr. Monday Ubani also hailed the official logo as “an uncommon act of creativity and introspection.”

His words: “The official logo is superb, clearly enticing and inviting. I hope that the logo is attractive enough to appeal to the inner recesses of the members of the Bar who will willingly register for the earth-quaking conference in Ibadan come May 23.”

Meanwhile, the ancient city of Ibadan is already in a state of frenzy in preparation for the conference. Aside from the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) which is chaired by former NBA General Secretary, Aare Isiaka Olagunju SAN, the Oyo State Government is fully committed to welcome conferees from all over the nation and beyond. The Oyo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Professor Oyelowo Oyewo SAN has also committed to fully support the annual conference.
