Dear learned colleague,
1. The Nigerian Bar Association (“NBA”) felicitates with President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, the Federal Government of Nigeria, the States and Local Governments of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and indeed every Nigerian on Nigeria’s attainment of 58 years of independence and sovereignty. We certainly have plenty to thank the Almighty for, particularly when we recall that our unity as a nation was sorely tested and almost shattered by and during the Nigerian Civil War. Indeed, our unity has been severely tested a number of times before and after the Civil War and remains a work-in-progress even today. That should not be, after 58 years of independence and sovereignty as a nation. This should indeed be a reflection point for our leaders on this Independence Anniversary day.
