As part of his campaign promise, President Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau has significantly transformed the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA). One such notable achievement is the ability to successfully re-establish the NBA Legislative Advocacy Office at the National Assembly. Collaborating closely with the NBA Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, this initiative has played a pivotal role in engaging with lawmakers and influencing vital legislative processes.
Under Maikyau’s guidance, the NBA has appointed a legislative liaison to strengthen interactions with the National Assembly, particularly on crucial bills requiring the association’s support or input. This strategic move aims to contribute to the passage of legislation that ultimately benefits the Nigerian populace.
A standout accomplishment of this collaborative effort is the successful facilitation and support for the passage and gazetting of critical legal instruments. The Arbitration and Mediation Act of 2023, a landmark piece of legislation, and the Legal Practitioners Remuneration (For Business, Legal Services, and Representation) Order 2023 testify to the NBA’s commitment to shaping legal frameworks that align with contemporary needs.
Maikyau’s administration has thus demonstrated a proactive and impactful approach to legislative advocacy, further solidifying the NBA’s role as a key player in shaping Nigeria’s legal landscape. As the president continues to steer the association with unwavering commitment, these accomplishments underscore the positive strides made within just one year, promising continued growth and influence under his leadership.
