The NBA Uyo branch is currently holding its 2022 Annual Law Week themed “The Advent of Ibom Deep Seaport and the Prospects of Maritime Law in Nigeria”. The week long event holds between 26th and 1st of April, 2022 and has in attendance distinguished legal personalities from far and wide.
The Law Week has attracted the goodwill of members of the bar, going by its organization and the immense success it has recorded since it started. Chinyere Obasi is not known to be left out in identifying with success, hence, she has equally sent in her goodwill message to the Uyo bar and same reads as follows:
“The prestigious Uyo bar is at it again. The long history of successful programs of the bar is in active continuation with the ongoing Law Week tagged “The Advent of Ibom Deep Seaport and the Prospects of Maritime Law in Nigeria”. The success of this year’s Law Week began with the chosen theme – with this theme that touches on one of the most important sectors of the Nigerian economy and the array of speakers lined up to dissect the attendant issues, the Uyo bar was already on the path to an impactful outing and so far, the event is nothing short of that.
The maritime sector of the economy is one that attracts some of the highest foreign direct investment, massively imparting on the Nigerian economy. It is quite apposite that an event as prestigious as a Law Week is dedicated to discussing the dynamics of same, particularly as it relates to riverine areas such as Uyo.
I know for sure that at the end of this Law Week, new frontiers would be opened for better understanding of the sector, job creation and career advancement.
I wish all members of the Uyo bar and its visitors success in the remaining events of the week.
Thank you and God bless”
