Mrs Oyinkansola Badejo-Okunsanya, the Chairperson for the 2024 Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference (NBA-AGC), on Friday, said over 3,074 lawyers have registered for the conference.

Badejo-Okunsanya told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the figure was commendable when compared with 2,000 registered lawyers at the comparative period of 2023.

NAN reports that the 64th NBA-AGC is billed to hold from Aug. 23 to Aug. 28, in Lagos.

The theme of the conference is: “Pressing Forward, A National Posture for Rebuilding Nigeria.”

Badejo-Okunsanya expressed optimism that a good number of lawyers would emerge at the end of July going by the registered delegates so far.

“As of Thursday, we already had 3,074 registered delegates and this is very encouraging because within same period last year, we had about 2,000 and it was quite worrisome.

“But by June 30, we should see a lot of activities in preparation for the conference and I am very optimistic that this conference will be mind blowing.

“Already we are feeling the excitement because Lagos state is special and is always an exciting venue to have the conference,” she said.

The CPC Chairperson described Tafawa Balewa Square, the venue for the conference, as quite significant considering the huge number of Nigerian lawyers.

Reacting to the perception from some lawyers who described the conference venue as an “agbero” zone, Badejo-Okunsanya said “she is very confident that everything will work out for the overriding good of the bar.” (NAN)
