It may have been the last item in a packed Conference programme, but the Gala Dinner and Awards Nite was no less eventful for that. Indeed, as reported by NEWSWIRE Law & Magazine’s correspondent in Lagos, it was a glamorous affair with many highlights, as conferees – decked out in their best finery – dined, wined, networked, took advantage of photo ops with old and new friends alike, and danced to contemporary musical favorites representing a variety of genres.

 

After the obligatory speeches of welcome by the Chairpersons of the NBAWF and the Conference Planning Committee, Mrs. Chinyere Okorocha and Mrs. Folashade Alli, SAN, respectively, it was the turn of the Dinner Chairperson, no other than the renowned arbitrator Mrs. Funke Adekoya, SAN, to speak to the theme and essence of the 2024 NBAWF Conference and IWD Event – which she did with characteristic insight, clarity and eloquence.

 

Mrs. Adekoya’s speech was followed by the Keynote Address, which was delivered on behalf of the Guest Speaker, Dr. Olasupo Olusi (CEO at the Bank of Industry).

 

The event also saw a number of goodwill messages – notably from Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN (Partner at Aluko & Oyebode. ode); Mrs. Joyce Oduah (Partner at Joyce & Okey Oduah LP); Tobenna Erojikwe (Partner at the Law Crest, and Chair of the NBA’s Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, ICLE); and Mazi Afam Osigwe, SAN, a former national General Secretary of the NBA who serves as the Senior Partner at Law Forte.

 

The evening was replete with gestures of appreciation to individuals, corporate organisations and entities whose contributions ensured the success of the Conference programme – as well as those who birthed the NBAWF as a body and helped sustain its chequered trajectory over the years.

 

Recognitions were given to the Sponsors and Partners who made the 2024 Conference as a whole, and the gala evening in particular, such a memorable experience – as well as to the Forum’s pioneer Governing Council members.

 

One of the highlights of the evening was a Special Session unveiling and honouring the patrons of the NBA Women Forum – among them the first female SAN and matriarch of the Bar, Chief Mrs. Folake Solanke; the first (and so far, the only) female Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Aloma Mariam Mustapha, CON, CFR; Hon. Justice Mary Peter-Odili, retired Justice of the Supreme Court; the only female President of the NBA in its long history, Mrs. Priscilla Kuye, SAN; Mrs. Hairat Balogun (the first female General Secretary of the NBA); immediate part Chairperson of the NBAWF, Prof. Oluyemisi Bamgbose, SAN; and a former Chairman of the NBA’s Section on Business Law (SBL), Mrs. Mfon Usoro.

 

Other highlights, such as a raffle draw during which prizes were won by a number of ecstatic Dinner guests, and an energetic dance performance by the Waw Factor group, rounded off what, by all accounts, was a highly enjoyable evening, and an unforgettable Conference experience.
