NBA President Posts Diamond Jubilee Message as Nigeria Celebrates 60th Independence Day
NIGERIAN BAR ASSOCIATION – DIAMOND JUBILEE MESSAGE
The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) joins all Nigerians in celebrating the grand occasion of the 60th Anniversary of our great nation as an independent and sovereign entity.
It seems just like a few years ago that we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our
independence in 2010. Alas, like a famous poet noted, time’s winged chariot hurries ever
Indeed, while we have abundant reasons to celebrate our continuous existence as a nation, it is important to acknowledge that recent events have tested our collective resolve, and it is a testament to our resilience and collective will that we have weathered, and continue to
weather, these storms.
The NBA uses this occasion to call on the Government and people of Nigeria to rededicate
ourselves to our democratic ideals of respect of the fundamental principles of our union
including respect for the supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law; unqualified
obedience of all orders of court; respect for the fundamental rights of citizens, and to
continually strive towards a country based on equity and fairness.
Happy Diamond Jubilee!
