NBA-NEC Ratifies Suspension of Gen- Sec Oduah



The National Executive Council of the Nigerian Bar Association (NEC-NBA), has ratified the suspension of Mrs. Joyce Oduah as the General Secretary of the association.

The ratification was carried out on Sunday evening at the  NBA-NEC meeting held on the sidelines of the NBA Annual Conference at Eko Atlantic City, Lagos.

It would be recalled that on August 15, the National Officers of the NBA, had suspended the General Secretary pending the ratification of the NEC.

Nine of the eleven officers who signed the resolution authorizing the suspension also resolved to refer her to the NEC for disciplinary action and to recommend her removal from office for gross misconduct.

At the NEC meeting on Sunday night, the council considered the wise counsel of the elders of the Bar including past Presidents and Senior Advocates of Nigeria on the need to protect the unity of the Bar and the legacies of the Olumide Akpata administration and resolved that the suspension be ratified.

Mrs Joyce Oduah therefore stands suspended as General Secretary, while Uche Nwadialo’s appointment as Acting General Secretary was ratified.

The petition for the removal of Joyce Oduah from office was however stayed in view of the pendency of the court action on the issue.
