NBA Proposes Expelling Unethical Lawyers To Sanitise Legal Profession


The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has proposed expelling unethical lawyers as a way of sanitising the legal profession.

The proposal was made at the Nigerian Bar Association’s Law Week in Yenagoa.

In her address, the Chief Judge of Bayelsa State, Justice Matilda Abrakasa, highlighted the judiciary’s crucial role in society.

The session, themed “The Legal Profession in a Time of Socio-Economic Uncertainty,” provided a platform for legal experts to discuss and propose solutions to the public’s declining trust in the judiciary and legal profession.

Gathered in the hall were leading legal professionals, convened to address the challenges facing judicial practice amidst widespread socio-economic uncertainty affecting all sectors and professions.

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, represented by King Collins Ebi Daniels, the Ola-Ebu of Aburemi clan, emphasised the session as a moment for reflection on governance issues and the need for reform.

The keynote speaker provided recommendations for the legal profession’s resilience in these challenging times.

Justice Obande Festus of the Supreme Court and other distinguished speakers also offered insights into improving the legal system.

Barrister Somina Johnbull, Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association’s Yenagoa branch, assured the public that the session would lead to a cleanup of the legal practice, tackling unethical behaviour among lawyers and judges.

A key recommendation was the expulsion of unethical lawyers to purify the legal profession.

On his part, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Heineken Lokpobiri, during the plenary session, said Nigeria is vying to become the headquarters of the Africa Energy Bank.

He said the federal government is set to launch with an initial capital of $5bn and aimed at expanding its asset base to $120bn within four years.

Minister Lokpobiri argued that fossil fuels remain essential, noting that developed countries continue to issue licenses for fossil fuel production while advising against their use in developing nations.
