Dear esteemed colleagues,

It is with great pleasure and profound honor that I welcome every one of you to the 2023 Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association.

In a world that is constantly evolving, where the dynamics of law, justice, and society intersect in intricate ways, this conference serves as a timely platform for us to collectively reflect, learn, and strategize. We gather here not only as legal practitioners, but as guardians of justice, champions of the rule of law, and advocates for positive change.

Our theme, “Getting It Right,” encapsulates the essence of our responsibilities as legal professionals. It calls us to examine the myriad challenges and opportunities that confront our profession and the society at large. It beckons us to critically evaluate our practices, our systems, and our roles in shaping a just and equitable future.

Throughout this conference, we are privileged to have a lineup of distinguished speakers and experts who will share their insights and experiences, helping us navigate through the complex legal landscape. Through engaging panel discussions, informative workshops, and enlightening keynote addresses, we aim not only to gain a deeper understanding of the issues at hand but also to foster meaningful collaborations and connections among all participants.

As we embark on this intellectual journey together, I encourage you all to actively participate, share your perspectives, and engage in constructive dialogues. Let us seize this opportunity to exchange ideas, challenge assumptions, and collectively chart a course toward a legal profession that is not only robust and resilient but also compassionate and inclusive.

Beyond the enriching legal discourse and professional development opportunities, we are excited to offer you a vibrant array of social and sporting events that will add an extra layer of excitement and camaraderie to your conference experience. We plan to ensure that you enjoy the camaraderie of your colleagues and unwind in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the President of the Bar, Mr. Y. C. Maikyau, SAN, and members of the Executive Council, the planning committee, our sponsors, and all those who have worked tirelessly to make this conference a reality. Your dedication and commitment are truly commendable.

I urge all of us to approach this conference with open minds, a thirst for knowledge, and a firm resolve to contribute to the discourse that will shape the future of our profession and our nation. Together, let us strive towards “Getting It Right” in all our endeavors.

Welcome to the 2023 Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association.
