Happening now in the city of Port Harcourt where a few members of the Eastern Bar Forum (EBF) are trying to adopt a candidate for the post of the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, a motion has just been raised and some lawyers opposed it. A good number of them who do not support it have staged a walkout.
JUST IN: The EBF has gone ahead to adopt Arthur Obi Okafor with the few members remaining at the meeting after the walkout. At a time when the NBA ban is yet to be lifted, it is shocking to see EBF adopting a candidate. Lawyers must learn to live by the law.
The members who walked away comprising of predominantly southsouth lawyers are converging to form another Association.
Update on this coming soon …
