3,074 attorneys registered for NBA annual conference


The Chairman of the 2024 General Assembly of the Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference (NBA-AGC), Oyinkansola Badejo Okunsanya, said as many as 3,074 lawyers have registered with the conference.

Badejo Okunsanya, speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos, said the figure was commendable when compared with the number of registered lawyers in 2023, which is 2,000.

NAN reports that the 64th NBA-AGC is scheduled to be held from August 23 to August 28 in Lagos.

The theme of the conference is: “Moving Forward, National Posture Towards Rebuilding Nigeria”.

Badejo Okunsanya expressed optimism that judging from the number of representatives registered so far, there will be a significant number of lawyers by the end of July.

“As of Thursday, 3,074 delegates have already been registered, which is very encouraging because at this time last year we were at around 2,000, which was very worrying.

“But by June 30, preparatory activities for the conference should be in full swing and I am very optimistic that this conference will be amazing.

“We are already feeling excited because Lagos State is a special place and is always an exciting venue to hold conferences,” she said.

She noted that the venue for the conference, Tafawa Balewa Square, was of great significance because it would attract a huge number of lawyers.

She expressed confidence that all would work out well for the bar.
