    According to the endorsement, Erojikwe is not merely seeking the presidency for personal gain but has a clear mission for the legal profession. Professor Okonkwo emphasized Erojikwe’s track record in various positions and appointments, suggesting that these experiences have prepared him well for the role of NBA President.

His support for Erojikwe is likely to spark discussions among NBA members about the future direction of the association and the type of leadership needed to address the challenges facing the legal profession in Nigeria.


    As the race for the NBA presidency heats up, Erojikwe’s campaign, bolstered by this high-profile endorsement, is expected to focus on his vision for reform and his track record of service within the legal community. The coming weeks are likely to see increased debate and scrutiny of all candidates’ platforms as NBA members prepare to cast their votes in this crucial election.
