NBA President Akpata absent at Body of Benchers’ meeting


The President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata was conspicuously absent on Tuesday at the meeting of the Body of Benchers (BOB).



The meeting, which held at the Body of Benchers Complex in Jabi, Abuja, was well attended by key stakeholders in the legal profession, including the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Kayode Ariwoola, past CJNs – Justice Mahmud Mohammed and Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Also in attendance was Justice Mary Odili (Rtd), who doubles as the Vice-Chairman of the Body of Benchers.



Past Presidents of the NBA, including Paul Usoro (SAN); O. C. J. Okocha (SAN); J.B. Daudu (SAN); Okey Wali (SAN) and A.B Mahmud (SAN), amongst several others leaders of the legal profession, were also there some of who participated virtually.


Akpata, who, by virtue of his office, is a member of the BOB, failed to attend Tuesday’s meeting, the first since he requested the BOB Chairman, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) to step down over a petition against a lawyer in Olanipekun’s firm.

As of press time, no reason was given for his absence. Calls to his number were ignored. The spokesman of the NBA, Rapuluchukwu Nduka also did not respond to calls.

The meeting by the BOB was held in furtherance of its traditional preparations for the Call to Bar ceremonies, scheduled for Wednesday, among other important issues bordering on the security of the nation, particularly as it affects the legal profession.

Nice, the fact that Olumide made a move to be the president is all that motivate me, it's not as if he's so brilliant to move the bar association forward but he attempt to and he is today, next to be the president is Segalink.

You too should make a move today.

Where they honestly expecting his presence? That might be deemed as a technical waiver of his assertions. You do not bow before a throne you don’t acknowledge or honour. Atleast nor for south south.

We nor dey hide am.
