The Forum further considered the Welfare of Young Lawyers in Abia State and the way forward.
On the above, the Forum agreed to meet with some personalities in Abia State to seek their support and partnership.
The Forum condemned in strongest terms the way and manner security agencies particularly the Nigerian Police handle Young Lawyers.
On the issue of the way and manner the Nigerian Police and other Security agencies handle Young Lawyers, and the activities of fake Lawyers, the forum agreed to pay a courtesy visit to the Commissioner of Police Abia State and Heads of other Security agencies in Abia State.
On the Issue of the forth coming NBA National Election, the Forum unequivocally agreed to adopt all the candidates adopted by the Eastern Bar Forum and would only make known their preference on candidates for offices where Eastern Bar Forum did not take decision on.
The Forum would take decision on candidates for offices not considered by EBF upon thorough scrutiny of the candidates by the Forum.
