Below is Mr Ede Asenoguan’s goodwill message to the Ikot Ekpene branch on the occasion of their 2022 Annual Bar Week which kick-started on the 8th and is to climax on the 12th of May, 2022, with the theme “Strengthening the Pillars of Democracy Through Effective Legislation”.
“Respected Chairman, Executives and Branch Members of Ikot Ekpene branch,
I wish to felicitate you on your Annual Bar Week which kick-started on the 8th of May 2022 to end on the 12th of May 2022. The event as expected has been a success as the various speakers and activities lined up therein have effectively dissected and thrown extensive light on the theme to wit “Strengthening the Pillars of Democracy Through Effective Legislation”.
If I may add, there is no gainsaying that legislation mar or make a people. Hence if we are serious as a nation to achieve a formidable democracy with strengthened institutions of government, we must take every step at ensuring that our legislation answer to international best practices and are people driven. We can only hope that our dear nation will gradually come to the light.
As you round up your Bar Week, may your branch always remain formidable.
Thank you and God bless”
Ede Asenoguan, Esq.
Past Chairman, NBA Benin Branch.
