Lagos NBA swears in new executives

Veteran Bar Leader, Mr. Martin Ogunleye who emerged as the new Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Lagos Branch has been sworn in with his executives.

Ogunleye who was returned unopposed – the first person in recent memory to assume leadership of the branch without an electoral battle – is to spearhead an Executive Committee that would steer the ship of the branch for the next two years.

Mrs. Uche Ikwueme is the new First Vice-Chairman while erstwhile Social Secretary, Mrs. Omohafe Opara rose to the position of Second Vice Chairman. Mr. Stephen Obajaja shoved aside strong opposition from two other candidates to emerge as General Secretary in a keenly contested race.
