THE Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami has been notified about the existence of the New Nigerian Bar Association (NNBA).
The group in a letter dated August 28, 2020, and signed by two Kaduna-based lawyers, Nuhu Ibrahim and Abdulbasit Suleiman, said, “We are pleased to inform you of the formation of a new Association of Lawyers as above captioned.
“The formation of the new Association has become imperative and expedient especially flowing from the activities, disposition and most recently, the decision of the Nigerian Bar Association-NEC (National Executive Committee) which apparently failed to take into consideration our national interests and particularly do not promote the unity of our indissoluble country, Nigeria.
“Sir, the New Nigerian Bar Association believes in the ideals that bounds our country together as echoed in our National Anthem: ‘The Labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain.’
“You are, however, to be further informed that work is in progress with regards to all the nitty-gritty of the formation of an Association such as this to which we shall keep you updated.”
