The pioneer Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Women’s Forum, Olufunmi Oluyede has expressed elation at the revival of the Forum.
Mrs. Oluyede said this in a statement Thursday.
Oluyede, co-founding Principal of TRIPLAW, lauded the NBA President Paul Usoro, SAN, administration calling it a leadership with “a listening ear”.
”The Lord be praised for the gift of life! We are altogether thrilled and indeed thankful to God Almighty to still be here -on this side of the divide -to witness this epochal development.
”We are much obliged -especially to NBA President Usoro for his listening ears to our pleas for the revival of the NBA Women Forum. Such an awesome blessing!
”With this brand new crop of excellent women in tow -and all our other assiduous Women Lawyers Groups (AWLA, FIDA et al) as co-laborers in our mutual quest for the enhancement of women’s rights and interests, our labor of the past (as the very first set of NBA Women Forum Council Executives) is certainly not in vain.
”HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS, my beloved sisters! The future looms brightly ahead for our noble cause.” The statement read.
”May the Lord continue to grant us all sufficiency in all things as we abound on to every good work globally in the journey ahead.” Oluyede prayed.
The NBA Women’s Forum was inaugurated in 2006. It was created to foster fellowship between women in the legal profession and to provide equal opportunity for the advancement of women in the legal field.
