Moderately Large Or Small Branches Of NBA Deserve Fair Treatments And Shall Surely Receive Fair Treatments Under Ikwuazom SAN

I am Paschal C.Ugwuanyi Esq. I am a member of Nigerian Bar Association Nnewi branch and chairman of the branch from 2018-2020. I wish to categorically state that from my experience, members of NBA from branches of NBA whose membership strengths are not as large as some known branches are erroneously believed not to be good or intelligent enough to make the list of committees of NBA like their colleagues in some known large branches.From experience, members of committees of NBA (at the national level )are year after year cycled amongst the branches whose membership strengths are large or very large while members of other branches that are believed not to be large enough continue to be onlookers. This is very unfair and unfortunate trend but remains an intentional or an oversight but verifiable wrong practice of some past Presidents of NBA.

Take for instance, after the unfortunate demise of one of our mentors,Late O.J.Okeke Esq (may his soul continues to rest in peace) some time in 2016,Nnewi branch(which admittedly is not as large as some branches like Lagos branch)never felt the existence or presence of NBA at the national level till 2019, when, with the efforts of Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN the then President of NBA, Paul Usoro SAN gave two members of our branch (including my humble self) opportunity to be made members of 2019 Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP).

Very painfully, from 2020 till date, no member of Nnewi branch has made the list of any committees of NBA at the national level. This ugly situation applies to so many other branches of NBA across the country. I want to emphasize that there are a good number of lawyers in moderately large branches of NBA or small branches of NBA who are as good and intelligent as their contemporaries in very large branches of NBA and should be allowed to be members of committees of NBA at the national level. Nothing justifies the practice of recycling particular people or individuals from particular branches of NBA while year after year,no single member of other branches makes the list of any committees of NBA.

Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN having remembered Nnewi branch in 2019,I am sure that if he emerges the President of NBA through our votes he must remember other branches of NBA which have similar character with Nnewi branch (in terms of membership strengths) by including their members in the list of some committees of NBA. I have no doubt that a vote for Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN is a vote for all inclusive Bar and passionately solicit for your vote for him come 20th of July, 2024.
