With little argument, the most looked forward to activity within NBA political circle in this election year, is the burial of Monday Ubani’s father, Pa Nwokocha Egbedubi Ubani, aged 101 years.
Dr. Monday Ubani, Esq, Chairman NBA Section on Public Interest and Development Law, NBA-SPIDEL, is friend of Kubwaexpress and we are morally bound to attend the party. At 101, though painful to his children, we are not attending a burial but celebration of life party. A life well lived and with quality products like Monday and siblings to show for it.
According to a notice published on many lawyer-friendly platforms, movement and accommodation (you will foot your bills), have been made.
Below is verbatim reproduction of the notice signed by Okey Ohagba for FRIENDS OF DR. MONDAY UBANI but we disagree with 1 (d). Owerri airport is nearer to Umudike – Ikwuano – Ikot-Ekpene Road than Uyo.
We urge you, to come through Sam Mbakwe airport Owerri.
Compliments distinguished Bar leaders and Colleagues. Many thanks to us all for what we’re collectively doing for our good friend, brother and colleague, Dr. Monday Onyekachi Uban. (MOU). Blessings to us all.
Here are some important updates towards the forthcoming events of 21st and 22nd April at Ikwuano Abia State.
1. TRAVEL ADVICE/DIRECTIONS:
(a.) From Umuahia.
*Awomukwu Ikwuano is along the Umuahia – Umudike – Ikwuano – Ikot-Ekpene Road. It is the last town before another community called *Ariam. Look out for Umualo junction in Awomukwu* About 30/35 mins drive from Umuahia main town. Road is in good shape.
(b.)From Uyo: Along Ikot-Ekpene Umuahia Road, after Ariam town is *Awomukwu* . Locate same *Umualo junction* and you’re there. About 27/30 mins drive from Uyo. Good road.
(c.) Coming by road: Umuahia is your best for hotel reservation.
(d.)Flying : Uyo airport is relatively nearer to Ubani’s place than assessing via Owerri airport. So you may consider hotel reservation in Uyo.
2. HOTEL ARRANGEMENTS:
Hotels are being reserved at very discounted rates at Umuahia and Uyo cities.
TONY NNAWIKE OBA OF NACO LOGISTICS IS IN CHARGE OF ALL HOTEL RESERVATIONS.
We expect further updates from him on available hotels and special rates.
3. BUS SHUTTLE:
Dr. Ubani has provided *air conditioned Coaster buses* to shuttle lawyers to and fro the events from their respective hotels, both at Umuahia and Uyo. For both the *Lawyers’ Night of Tributes/Wake-keep on 21st and burial on 22nd* . Expect more updates on bus departure points, time and route.
4. UNIFORM/DRESS CODE:
a. Night of tributes/Wake-keep – No dress code
b. BURIAL DAY (22nd).
WHITE ATTIRE FOR ALL LAWYERS is highly recommended.
Abia State is relatively safe. However, maximum security arrangements are in place to ensure the safety of all prospective guests at Ikwuano.
Once again I thank you all for being here. Let’s endeavour to attend the scheduled events to honour our own MOU and to make the celebration of life more eventful.
May God bless us all.
