3,074 lawyers register for NBA annual conference



No fewer than 3,074 lawyers have registered for the Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference (NBA-AGC), Mrs Oyinkansola Badejo-Okunsanya, the Chairperson for the 2024 edition of the conference, has said.

Badejo-Okunsanya told our correspondent in Lagos on Friday that the figure was commendable when compared with 2,000 registered lawyers in 2023.

NEWSVERGE reports that the 64th NBA-AGC is billed to hold from Aug. 23 to Aug. 28 in Lagos.

The theme of the conference is: “Pressing Forward, A National Posture for Rebuilding Nigeria”.

Badejo-Okunsanya expressed optimism that a good number of lawyers would emerge at the end of July going by the registered delegates so far.

“As of Thursday, we already had 3,074 registered delegates and this is very encouraging because within same period last year, we had about 2,000 and it was quite worrisome.

“But by June 30, we should see a lot of activities in preparation for the conference and I am very optimistic that this conference will be mind blowing.

“Already we are feeling the excitement because Lagos State is special and is always an exciting venue to have the conference,” she said.

She described Tafawa Balewa Square, the venue for the conference as quite significant, considering the huge number of lawyers.

She expressed confidence that everything would work out for the good of the bar.
