The 61st edition of the Nigerian Bar Association’s Annual General Conference is 6 days away and we are very excited. According to the NBA President, Olumide Akpata “it represents a novel platform for knowledge exchange on the continent as we bring together world leaders, political icons, judges, leading lawyers, thought leaders, policy makers, business icons, and civil society to not just discuss but produce an implementation plan to foster the adoption of policies, standards and practices leading to socio-political stability, economic growth, sustainable and infrastructural development for accelerated regional and economic integration”

The conference will run from 22nd October to 30th October with the theme: Taking the Lead. According to the TCCP Chairman, “t<span;>his special conference is about telling our story through thought leadership, and it is on this basis that he welcomes you and asks that you immerse yourself in the celebration of 61 years of the NBA Annual General Conferences, 61 years of Nigeria’s nationhood, and 61 years of independence of a good number of African countries.”

Most definitely the conference will be one of many firsts.
