The creation of 3 new branches of the NBA was approved by the just concluded NBA-NEC meeting held in Ilorin. This approval birthed two branches in Abuja (Garki Branch and Nyanya/Karu Branch) and one branch in Lagos (Surulere branch), bringing the total number of NBA branches to 128.
Chinyere Obasi who was present at the said NEC meeting has hailed the leadership of the NBA for this developmental stride. She stated as follows.
“I commend the leadership of the NBA for its progressive mindset towards the bar. The recent creation of 3 new branches of the NBA is a step in the right direction, to the effect that same creates avenues for more members of the Bar to offer their services in executive capacities. It creates a sense of belonging and shows that the NBA is growing in leaps and bounds.
This is yet another milestone achievement for this administration. They have effectively laid very smooth and solid foundations for the incoming national officers. We shall indeed hit the ground running without stress come August, thanks to the Akpata ably led administration.
May the NBA never run out of steam in its noble endeavours.
Thank you and God bless”
