44 Branches of Young Lawyers Forum, YLF, writes Usoro, Demands Immediate constitution of YLF Executive Committee

A group of 44 Young Lawyers Forum from 44 Branches of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has written to NBA President, Paul Usoro SAN, requesting for the immediate constitution of the National Executive Committee of the Forum.

The forum which is one of the statutory fora created by the NBA Constitution has been without national leadership since Paul Usoro took over leadership of the Association notwithstanding numerous promises to constitute same by Usoro

The letter with heading  “RE: CONSTITUTION OF THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF YOUNG LAWYERS’ FORUM“, leaked to BarristerNG stated ……..”We write on behalf of the Committee of Chairmen and Secretaries of the Nigerian Bar AssociationYoung Lawyers’ Forum Branches (the “Committee”) with regards to the constitution of the National Executive Committee of the Young Lawyers’ Forum.”

“It is our belief that the National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association ably led by your good self has the intention to ensure that young lawyers are given adequate support and are well integrated into the activities of our “Noble Bar”. It is based on this premise that we express our surprise that your administration is yet to constitute the National Executive Committee of the Young Lawyers’ Forum as promised several times by your good self including the one made at the Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Bar Association held on the 29th day of August, 2019 in Lagos State as contained in page 5 paragraph 3.1 (i) of your Address.”.. the letter stated.

“Sir, apart from the fact that the branches of the Forum are adversely affected by the delay in the constitution of the Committee, the welfare and capacity development for young lawyers in general is equally adversely affected. For instance, the possibility of holding the Annual Young Lawyers’ Forum Summit this year is hanging in the balance due to this.” …. the letter further stated

The Young Lawyers prayed the NBA President to immediately constitute the YLF National Executive.

The Paul Usoro Executive have ten months remaining in their two years tenure.
