Treasurer of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest Development and Litigation, NBA-SPIDEL, Funmi Adeogun has conveyed her felicitations to the NBA Ikot Ekpene Branch on the auspicious occasion of their Bar Week.
“I humbly extend my congratulations to the Executive Committee and the entire members of the Nigerian Bar Association Ikot Ekpene Branch on their 2022 Bar Week holding between 8th May to 12th May, 2022.
This year’s theme “Strengthening the Pillars of Democracy through Effective Legislation” is an accurate reflection of the important role and responsibility of legislature in a democratic governance.
It is important to promote effective legislation by defining, elaborating and strengthening the democratic roles of each branch of government in the exercise of state power. The hallmark of a democratic government is that it is responsive to citizen interests.
“The Bar Week provides another opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Nigerians cherish.
“I commend the NBA Ikot Ekpene Branch for tirelessly championing the legal profession, the cause of democracy, rule of law and a better society.
“Here’s wishing you a successful and memorable Bar Week. Thank you and God bless.”
