The Nigerian Bar Association led by Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud, SAN,' OON fecilitates with all Nigerians on the celebration of our 57th independence anniversary.
The President of the NBA enjoins all Nigerians particularly the political office holders to use this occasion to critically and soberly reflect on challenges currently facing the nation and profer meaningful and implementable solutions to those challenges within the ambit of the law.
The quest for a United Nigeria cannot be over emphasized at this particular period. Our strength as a nation lies in our people's diversity which should be positively applied for the progress and development of our dear country.
As Nigerians, we must continue to co-exist with one another in any part of the country in peace and harmony to attain the lofty heights we seek.
There is a great need for Nigerians to imbibe the wordings of the 2nd Stanza of the National Anthem as it is on its own, a road map for the future of our Nation. The 2nd Stanza reads thus:
Oh God of Creation, direct our noble cause
Guide our leader’s right
Help our youths the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign
The President further enjoins all organs of government to continue to promote the rule of Law and uphold the tenets of justice in carrying out their duties.
God Bless the Nigerian Bar Association!!
God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!!!!
