A Port Harcourt-based legal pactitioner, Mr. Chijioke Agi, has described the recently concluded Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) election as credible.
Mr. Agi, who made the remark while speaking with journalists in Port Harcourt at the weekend, expressed satisfaction that the NBA was setting a pace for others to follow.
He noted that Paul Usoro’s victory as the national president of NBA was well deserved given his impeccable antecedents.
He described Paul Usoro, a semor Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), as a man who had the capacity to take the Bar to greater heights.
Mr. Agi called on the new NBA president to do something urgently to stop the expiration of the legal practitioner’s seal. He explained that the lawyer could use his seal until it was exhausted instead of making the seal a yearly affair.
Heexpressed optimision that the tenure of Usoro would bring a new lease of life to members of the Nigerian Bar.
He called on all members of the Bar to give Usoro the needed support to take the Bar to greater heights.
Agi urged Mr. Usoro (SAN) to carry everybody along.
According to him, “ it must be an inclusive administration’’.
