President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on the inauguration of its new executive committee led by Mr. Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud, at the association’s 2016 Annual General Conference held in Port-Harcourt.
The President also commended the outgoing executive committee that was led by Augustine Alegeh for the resourceful exchange of ideas, commitment and support for national development.
According to a presidency statement, Buhari urged the new NBA leader to use his vast experience in private practice, and public service, garnered over the years to build on the legacies of his predecessor, and contribute to reforms across the country.
“As the new executive settles down to work, the President looks forward to having a strong and sustainable relationship with the leaders, especially in jointly tackling the challenges currently facing the nation.
“He prays that the almighty God will grant the new NBA executive the wisdom to realize their vision for the association, and the country”, added the statement issued by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
