I, on behalf of the entire Minna Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, hereby extend the warmest congratulations to the newly elected officers of the National Executive Committee of our dear Association, on your victory in the just concluded polls.
I urge you all to extend hands of partnership to our colleagues who also contested along side you. As an association of learned gentlemen, we are at a very critical period and cannot afford to be disunited. The fight must be against that which threatens our collective interest as a body of lawyers; not against one another.
In the course of campaigns, promises were made to the bar and very sound manifestos presented. It is time to sheath your swords and get to work in ensuring that those promises are fulfilled in the overall interest of the Bar.
