The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL), Prof. Paul Ananaba (SAN) has formally invited the NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata to the forthcoming Annual Conference of the section holding between May 23 and 26, 2021 in the ancient city of Ibadan.
The theme of the conference is “The role of public interest in governance in Nigeria.”
In his virtual report to the NBA National Executive Committee (NBA-NEC) meeting which held today in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Ananaba urged the NBA President to “lead the entire Nigerian Bar to the ancient city of Ibadan,” adding that it was going to be “an unforgettable experience.”
Akpata commended SPIDEL on the preparations leading up to the conference, and assured that the annual conference has the full support of the NBA leadership.
Ananaba then invited a member of the NBA-SPIDEL Annual Conference Planning Committee and Chairman of NBA Calabar Branch, Dr. Paul Ebiala to decorate the NBA President with the customized Annual Conference muffler, an exercise which attracted much applause from the audience.
The conference promises to be not only well attended but very rewarding and insightful in line with professional development, as many leading jurists have committed to attend the annual conference as speakers. The three-day event has a load of sub-themes such as ‘Public interest and the respect of the rights of citizens to protest against certain policies of government,’ ‘The legality of Commission of Inquiry of the State Government over Police Brutality,’ ‘Enforcement of Judgement’ and ‘Locus standi in the light of the recent Supreme Court case of Centre for Oil Pollution Watch Vs NNPC’ among others.
