Seni Adio, SAN, said, “The NBA-SBL intends to maintain its quest to be dynamic, ingenious, resourceful, catalytic, and foster specialization.  The SBL will deploy technology that will make this e-Conference one for the ages.  Though virtual, it will still be what I call VIRTUALRACTIVETM. It will be Virtual Active because we intend to deploy technology that would enable delegates to “move” between sessions and not be “locked” into specific sessions.  It would also allow for all sorts of business, as well as social networking.”


The Conference Chair, Ozofu Ogiemudia, added that, “The conference topics will focus on issues such as charting a path for an alliance between public and private sectors in order to strike the correct balance between the regulatory function of government and collaborative initiatives with the business community.  We will also discuss business continuity in times of crisis, the digital workforce and accelerating remote productivity.”


The NBA Section on Business Law (SBL) is the special arm of the Nigerian Bar Association, which engenders the development of commercial law and specialised commercial law practice in Nigeria.The section currently has 21 committees who focus on specialized areas of commercial law practice and addressing issues from different sectors of the Nigerian economy. Through its committees and strategic partnerships with the public and private sectors, the section organises periodic workshops, seminars and training programmes for members, with a view to promoting commercial and business interests in Nigeria.
