Felix Chukwuma Ashimole; Kubwaexpress Felicitates NBA Bwari

On behalf of my humble self and the staff of Kubwaexpress.com, I felicitate NBA Bwari on its 10th anniversary.

It gladdens my heart, to see the milestone achievements by this young branch in less than 10yrs from the years of Bwari Lawyers Forum; the days Kubwa/Bwari resident lawyers were begged to attend meet.

Today, NBA Bwari, is the choice destination of any Abuja based lawyer in search of a Branch, where his welfare will be taken care of in a cordial respectful atmosphere that will allow for the full expression of one’s potentials.

Without delving into the history of the Branch, I wish to thank Mazi Afam Osigwe, SAN under whose tenure as Unity Bar Chairman, Bwari was born. He gave all necessary assistance to the creation of the Branch as he believed back then that NBA Branches should not be too big and far from lawyers but should be of manageable size to be able for members to know one another, interact closely and improve one another’s practice.

I also wish to thank, Mela Nungeh, SAN. He was a steady hand used by NBA to hold NBA Bwari together, when peace, unity and respect was threatened at less than 2 years of the Branch’s existence due to succession tussle.

Finally, as we celebrate, I sorrowfully remember members of NBA Bwari, who started this journey but have transited to immortality; Paul Odoh, Joseph Ashefel, T.K.Yau, to mention but a few. May their spirits watch over us as we celebrate.

For the next generation going into the future, I wish Young Lawyers Forum, happy anniversary too and urge that they hold on unto the tradition, convention and rules of the Bar, particularly, the outstanding qualities, for which NBA Bwari is known and envied for by other NBA Branches.
