“THANK YOU NOTE FROM JOYCE ODUAH, FICMC”
My very distinguished Colleagues, this is an extremely special moment for us. A few minutes ago, the 2020 NBA National Election which commenced at about 11pm on Wednesday, 29 July 2020 ended, and I was elected as the General Secretary of the NBA – the biggest and most vibrant Bar Association in Africa. Indeed, I am sincerely humbled and honoured by the avalanche of confidence you have reposed in me.
May I use this medium to thank all my supporters, coordinators and well wishers, for your unwavering support and tremendous sacrifices. I could not have emerged victorious as the NBA General Secretary without your support. I am deeply indebted to you all. Be rest assured that I will deliver on the mandate bestowed on me and will keep to all my campaign promises, God willing. This is our victory and our moment!
I must thank the ECNBA for a transparent, free and fair 2020 NBA National Election. Regardless of the minor election glitches, you will agree with me that the electoral process was seamless and credible.
I am passionate about transforming the NBA National Secretariat, and I will work assiduously to achieve it with your support and cooperation. I believe that to transform the NBA, we need all hands on deck. Therefore, I am inviting you all to join me in repositioning the NBA for effective service delivery to all lawyers. I believe together, we can build the NBA of our dream.
I thank you immensely for the trust placed in me, and I pledge to honour that trust. Most importantly, I thank God Almighty without whom I can do nothing.
Welcome to the era of a reformed NBA National Secretariat.
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
Long live the Nigerian Bar Association!
JOYCE ODUAH, FICMC
NBA General Secretary Elect
