President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the new leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, of continued cooperation of his administration in addressing the broad range of challenges and opportunities facing the legal profession and the country.

The president gave the assurance on Saturday while congratulating the new president of NBA, Mr. Olumide Akpata.

Buhari wished Akpata success in the new position of leading Nigerian lawyers to chart a path of professional development and fulfilment.

He said as a lawyer of over two decades who had held several strategic positions in the legal association, he believed that Mr Akpata’s vast knowledge and experience in litigation, corporate world and engaging with government at different levels, would greatly benefit the Bar and indeed all Nigerians, who looked up to the learned fellows as crucial stakeholders in a modern democracy.
