Former Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association NBA Bwari Branch Mohammed Tsav has sent a congratulatory message to the leadership and distinguished members of NBA Jos Branch on the auspicious occasion of their 2021 Law Week to be held at the Mellinium International Conference Center, Domcat Bali Road, Jos, Plateau State.
Mr. Tsav said ” I congratulate the entire members of the Nigerian Bar Association, Jos Branch on the occasion of its 2021 Law Week themed “Lawyers as Catalysts in Nation Building.”
“One key reason why lawyers play a pivotal role in nation building is the instrumentality of law. No nation in modern times can survive without laws. Laws are made to regulate many sectors such as the economic sector, agricultural sector, educational sector, religious sector, the polity of a nation and all other sectors,” Tsav empashied.
“Lawyers are the custodians of these laws. They understand the laws better and can sue for change when these laws are not religiously followed by public office holders and thus effectively assist in building the nation. In fact, lawyers also serve as watchdogs in the decision making process.
“The Law Week which is scheduled to hold from 26th to 30th November, 2021, is built around a central theme. Programmes and ideas spurred by the theme make the Law Week informative and educative for the legal practitioners, and the community at large.
“The NBA Jos Law Week is held every year to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession.
“Once again I wish you a rewarding Law Week.”
