The 57th Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) scheduled to hold in Lagos, Nigeria, from 18 – 24 August 2017, (under the distinguished leadership of the NBA President A.B. Mahmoud OON, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and former Attorney General of Kano State), is themed with a laser focus on “African Business: Penetrating through Institution Building”.
What promises to be a transformational and path defining legal and business forum in Africa, is bringing together a cross section of pioneers and influencers drawn from government, business, professional services, academia and politics from around the globe, to anchor sessions: sharing, training and motivating, on the various facets of the theme. There could be no better time than now to prepare for what is to come to the continent with the next wave of digitisation by Generation X and the maturing “Digital Natives”: the emerging icons. Humanity’s grand challenges are magnified in the Continent and more so its cynosure: Nigeria. It’s aetiology: corruption, poverty, disease, illiteracy and misdirection in governance, may find cure in institution building.
With a vision fixed on the future, the aim is to facilitate knowledge exchange and networking with innovators and pace setters from around the world to inspire and build the next generation of the African Bar, starting with its largest the NBA; but extending to other arms of development. The outcome of the Conference will be practical guide and policy recommendations that will take forward the widely accepted notion of accelerating economic development and social justice in the continent. With knowledge development and engaging debates the Bar will be repositioned in its critical role in economic and social development by building institutions as units of stability, encouraging rule of law, and good governance.
The conference will be opened by the Acting President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo SAN, GCON, in his own right as a foremost Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
We ask that you take a ride with us into the future: a land of opportunity fully harnessed for its people to enjoy and the world to marvel.
