I write with profound joy to felicitate with the EBF Governor, S. Longwilliams Esq., Governing Council, leaders and distinguished members of the Eastern Bar Forum on this occasion of the EBF QUARTERLY GENERAL MEETING, holding here in the Garden City from the 15th to the 16th of November, 2019.
As I welcome you, dear colleagues, to Portharcourt, I urge us to brainstorm more committedly on issues affecting us as a Forum, the NBA, Legal Profession and our country Nigeria; and proffer ideas for a more promising future.
May I seize this opportunity to, once more congratulate the new Governing Council of EBF, this meeting being the maiden in their tenure.
I salute the Government of Rivers State and the leadership of NBA Portharcourt branch for providing the necessary facilities and being good hosts as always.
While wishing us fruitful deliberations as we strive to rebuild our dear EBF and the NBA, I pray for journey mercies back to our various jurisdictions.
Enjoy your stay in the Garden City!
Okey Leo Ohagba, Esq. ChMC.
(Immediate Past NBA 1st Asst. Secretary)
