Dear Colleagues,

In fulfilment of the current administration’s objective of institutionalising the programs
and organs of governance of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), the NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata, inaugurated the Governing Council of the Nigerian Bar Association-
Human Rights Institute (NBA-HRI) in Abuja on 17th March 2022.

You may recall that part of the electoral promises of the NBA President was to re-
constitute and strengthen the NBA-HRI to promote and protect respect for the
fundamental rights of the generality of citizens and collaborate with relevant
organisations to collectively serve as a voice for the masses and represent vulnerable victims of human rights abuses.

The mandate of the NBA-HRI lies at the heart of the NBA’s objective of promoting the rule of law, safeguarding human rights, ensuring access to justice, enhancing capacity building and skills development on human rights issues, advocating for social, economic, and
political rights, amongst others. With the inauguration of its Governing Council, the NBA-

HRI has become fully empowered to pursue these ideals.
The Governing Council shall oversee the NBA-HRI’s plan of actions and thematic
responses to issues within its mandate and carry out such other functions that it may
deem fit appropriate in connection with its terms of reference, or as may be assigned to it by the NBA President or the National Executive Council of the NBA.
Members of the Governing Council who were drawn from various branches of the NBA and whose diverse skills and experiences are expected to facilitate the activities of the NBA-HRI are as follows:

  1. Mr. Chino Obiagwu, SAN (Chairman)
  2. Olawale Fapohunda, SAN
  3. Mr. Rommy Mom
  4. Prof Joy Ezeilo
  5. Mr. Sule Usman, SAN
  6. Mrs. Florence Obiakor
  7. Dr. Moses Arome
