The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) held her 1st National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of 2021 on March 18, 2021 at the Emerald Event Centre, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
The attention of the Nigerian Bar Association (“NBA”) has been drawn to a directive credited to the Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (“CAC”) to the effect that accredited agents of the CAC, including lawyers, are to revalidate their status as agents with the CAC and pay the sum of Ten Thousand Naira (₦10,000), failing which the defaulting agents may be unable to access the CAC’s Portal.

In my inaugural address on the 28th of August 2020, I reiterated the resolve of the leadership of the NBA to build a functional Association that works for the members and for our society.
