The meeting also featured the reading of statutory reports by other members of the outgoing executive council as to the gains made in the fortunes of the branch in the past two years under their watch. This was followed by the Auditor’s Report. All reports were duly adopted.
NEWSWIRE Law and Events Magazine correspondent at the MUSON Center venue of the AGM reports that the main highlight of the occasion was the formal swearing-in of the new executive council. The new Chairman, Ikechukwu Uwanna is the Principal Partner at the law firm of Tsedaqah Partners. Also sworn in along with him were the following: Abiye Tam-George (Vice-Chairman); Nta Ekpiken ( Secretary); Caroline Obi (Treasurer); Jude Chukwuka Iwelumo (Assistant General Secretary); Anthonia Eke (Financial Secretary); Elo Adhekpekoli (Publicity Secretary); Enomma Umoren (Social Secretary); Chinwendu Ugochukwu (Welfare Secretary); and Rita Uloko (Provost).
In his first remarks as Chairman of the Lagos Bar branch, Uwanna praised his predecessor, Yemi Akangbe and the outgone executive for their outstanding stewardship and expressed gratitude for the seamless transition between the two executive councils. He went on to announce the constitution (or re-constitution) of the various statutory committees of the branch, as well as the introduction of one or two new ones. He promised, on behalf of his colleagues on the executive council, to justify the trust and confidence placed in them.
Another highlight of the day was the formal cutting of a cake to usher in the dawn of a new era in the long and illustrious history of the largest bar branch in sub-Saharan Africa, as the Uwanna-led EXCO turned their attention to the challenges and opportunities of the next two years.
