NBA 58th Annual General Conference 2018
From Sunday 26 August 2018
To Friday 31 August 2018
On behalf of the President and other national officers of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), it is my pleasure to introduce the 58th Annual General Conference (#NBA2018AGC) of the NBA scheduled to hold from August 26 - 30, 2018.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Transition, Transformation and Sustainable Institutions” and the venue is the International Conference Center, FCT – Abuja, Nigeria.

The conference theme has been carefully chosen to reflect the global, socio-economic, technological and political shifts that underpin current contextual realities in governance, business and politics. Debates around the challenges to the assumed global order or the developmental difficulties in Africa reinforce the need for sustainable institutions to manage transitions and transformations.

The theme similarly speaks to the role various stakeholders can play in ensuring peaceful and successful transitions, drawing references from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. The Conference will, therefore, focus on how transitions are handled in critical spheres of human endeavours and the strength of institutions to withstand the shocks that may be incidental to change.

The conference will have five sub-themes which include Political Transition and Governance; Rule of Law & Security; Sustainable Economic Development; Technological Disruptions; and Diversity and Inclusion which will be reflected in discussions at over thirty-five sessions at the conference.

At its core, the conference will feature a keynote address by the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency, President Nana Akufo-Addo; a conversation with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR; and an address by a former Head of State of Nigeria, General Abdusalami Abubakar (Retired) who is generally acclaimed to have overseen one of the most peaceful transitions of power from military to civilian authorities. The conference will also feature high level panel discussions by renowned global and industry leaders in various fields while we will also have a complement of young minds who will be making robust contributions to nation-building from their perspectives.

The NBA is Africa’s largest body of lawyers with over 106, 000 members and the Annual General Conference remains a melting pot for intellectual and policy shaping discourse. This year is going to be no different as we expect more than 10,000 delegates to converge in the city of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria to chart the course for transformation of law, politics and the economy in Nigeria and Africa.

For ease of participation at this year’s conference, we have launched our new website which will leverage cutting edge technology and mobile applications, to cater for registration, conference enquiries, hotel and event bookings and details on conference speakers at the click of a button. We will also continue to update the website with exciting features such as tourism guides and activities to expect at our Friendship Centres, among other details as we progress.

Payment for the #NBA2018AGC should only be made online. Prospective delegates are advised to adhere strictly to this, as payment through any other means such as bank deposits will not be regarded as complete registration.
