IKOT EKPENE BAR ASSOCIATION HOLD THE 2018 (NBA) WEEK AFTER A VERY LONG TIME.

The Ikot Ekpene BAR Association this year decided to partake in the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) BAR week, after “almost” ten years of not observing the Association national calendar event. The BAR week as fondly referred is a legal event known and observed all over the country by all lawyers and legal practitioners, it characterised the assemblage  of Lawyers in a whopping one week of legal funfair, exhibitions, lectures and other legal activities with the guest of fostering unity amongst practitioners, as well as advanced uniform professional conducts.   T
Tomorrow, the Lawyers are expected to go on a day recess in an off day to resume on Wednesday with free legal service (pro-bono) to the members of the public. Of course, the climax would come on Friday with a novelty football match at the Ikot Ekpene town stadium, as the Ikot Ekpene Bar take on their Uyo BAR counterpart.

The 2018, Ikot Ekpene BAR week, with the theme “CUSTOMARY LAW AND FEMALE INHERITANCE IN AKWA IBOM STATE (THE PROS&CONS) kicked started proper yesterday, Sunday, 22, with a Church service at the St. Vincent Catholic Church, Ikot Ekpene, followed by a high-wire opening ceremony and lectures that took place earlier today, Monday, 23 April 2018. The opening ceremony also played host to the Attorney General of the state and the Commissioner of Justice, Bar ENiekan Nwoko, who represented Governor Udom Emmanuel.
