The President of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, Justice Benedict Bakwaph Kanyip (FNIALS) has assured that the court would participate actively in the forthcoming Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest Law and Development (NBA-SPIDEL) Annual Conference holding in Ibadan from May 23 to 26, 2021.
The Annual Conference is scheduled to hold at the exquisite Jogor Centre, off Liberty Road, Ibadan between May 23 and 26, 2021.
Registration has since started for the annual fiesta which is planned as the first major in-person conference by the NBA since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. Many lawyers have expressed excitement at the prospect of reconnecting with their peers since the last in-person Annual General Conference in Lagos almost two years ago.
In a letter to the NBA-SPIDEL Chairman, Prof. Paul Ananaba SAN dated March 26, 2021, the court stated that two of its foremost jurists, Justice John Dele Peters and Justice O. Adebowale would represent it at the annual conference.
Signed by Mr. Solomon Olufemi Agunloye, Principal Registrar II, the court specifically stated that its president would be represented by Justice Peters, and wished NBA-SPIDEL “successful deliberations at the event.”
It is recalled that Prof. Ananaba had during the just concluded NBA National Executive Committee (NBA-NEC) Meeting held at Uyo invited the NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata to attend the annual conference, an invitation he gladly accepted.
Meanwhile, the ancient city of Ibadan is already in a state of frenzy in preparation for the conference. Aside from the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) which is chaired by former NBA General Secretary, Aare Isiaka Olagunju SAN, the Oyo State Government is fully committed to welcome conferees from all over the nation and beyond. The Oyo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Professor Oyelowo Oyewo SAN has also committed to fully support the annual conference.
