Distinguished guests, esteemed colleagues, and honored members of the Nigerian Bar Association, Bwari Branch,I stand before you today as the Chairman of this great Branch, and I am honored to welcome you all to the 2024 NBA Bwari Law Week.This year’s theme, “Strengthening the Foundations of Justice in Nigeria,” is a timely reminder of our collective responsibility as legal practitioners to uphold the principles of justice and promote the rule of law in our beloved country.As we gather here today, we are reminded that the foundations of justice are built on the pillars of fairness, equality, and access to justice for all. However, we are also aware that these foundations are constantly being tested by the challenges of our time.

From the lingering issues of judicial reform to the rising tide of human rights violations, we are confronted with the urgent need to strengthen the very foundations of our justice system.As lawyers, we have a critical role to play in this endeavor. We must continue to be the voice of the voiceless, the defenders of the defenceless, and the champions of the rule of law.We must work tirelessly to ensure that our justice system is fair, efficient, and accessible to all. We must also continue to hold those in power accountable for their actions, and ensure that the rights of citizens are protected and respected.But, my dear colleagues, we cannot do this alone.

We need the support and collaboration of all stakeholders in the justice sector, including the judiciary, the executive, and the legislature.
We need to work together to address the systemic issues that undermine the effectiveness of our justice system, and to create an environment that fosters the rule of law and promotes the well-being of all citizens.As we celebrate this Law Week, let us recommit ourselves to the noble cause of strengthening the foundations of justice in Nigeria. Let us continue to be the guardians of the law, and the champions of justice and human rights.
