I am Moruff O. Balogun ESQ., a legal practitioner and head of chambers of A.A. Baruwa & Co. of 13, Folagbade Street, Opp. Central Mosque, Oyingbo, Ijebu ode, Ogun State. I am a litigation lawyer and prolific legal writer.
I am officially declaring my intention to run for the Office of the Public Relation Officer (P.R.O) which according to the NBA constitution 2015(as amended) is also known as Publicity Secretary of our noble bar, Nigerian Bar Association, Ijebu Ode branch.
The distinguished elders and gentlemen of the bar, I am of the firm view that my aspiration to serve the bar cannot be fruitful without your total support.
If I emerge as the Public Relation Officer of the bar (Ijebu Ode branch), I shall ensure the rebranding of our branch the more, and also join hands with other members of the executives in lifting and further connecting our branch to the entire legal world.
I am quite aware of the duties/functions of the office of the Public Relation Officer (Publicity Secretary) as enshrined in the NBA constitution 2015(as amended), and by the special grace of God, I shall ensure my best is offered in discharging the said duties.
PART 1- The Nigerian Bar Association uniform bye-law for branches.
Publicity Secretary’s functions are as follows:
a. To publicize the activities of the Branch and if the need arises to assist the National Publicity Secretary of the Association in matters relating to events within the jurisdiction of the Branch.
b. To present a correct and positive image of the Branch to the public.
c. To on the direction of the chairman, issue press releases and statements on matters of general interest to the branch as approved by the executive community or, in case of emergencies, by the chairman.
Distinguished elders and gentlemen of the noble bar, there is merit in being brief, and I want to summarily state that if elected as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ijebu Ode bar, I promise to do my best without fear and favor.
Thank you. Signed
Moruff O. Balogun, Esq.
