“Access to Finance Should be A Key Component of NBA’s Welfare for Lawyers” – Foremost Presidential Candidate, Olumide Akpata Speaks

Spread the love

Today’s interview of foremost NBA Presidential candidate, Olumide Akpata was an excellent interview. He provided very practical responses to issues affecting the Bar and innovative ways of dealing with them. These responses can only come from a deep appreciation of the issues facing the Bar and practical knowledge of how they can be dealt with. Olumide Akpata is indeed ready to lead.

He had a lot to say but was afforded too little time to engage.

Here are some takeaways from his interview:

“Access to finance for members on reasonable grounds especially those looking to set up their own practices should be a key component of our welfare”

“NBA under my watch will not condone maltreatment of any lawyers. NBA will need to step up and protect interest of its members”

“I know the role health insurance has played in my being healthy. That is what I want every lawyer to enjoy. NBA under my watch will set up a properly capitalised health insurance scheme that will help pay for lawyers to tackle health related issues”.

“The NBA will have lawyers on retainer across the country and their job will be to defend other lawyers who suffer any form of harassment from law enforcement agencies and get paid from a welfare fund”.
