The committee led by Obioma Ezenwobodo has been confirmed by NBA President Y.C. Maikyau SAN as the authentic Exco of the NBA Garki Branch, Abuja.
Following the NBA Abuja Branch’s division into the NBA Abuja and NBA Garki Branches on June 9, 2022 at the NBA NEC meeting in Ilorin, Kwara State, the NBA Garki Branch was created.
The immediate past Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Mr. Olumide Akpata declared that the three new branches created by the NBA National Executive Council last June could not take off due to technical issues but stated that the new branches of which the NBA Garki branch was included, could not take off until incumbent NBA President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN issues a directive to that effect thus, “NEC approved the new branches subject to the creation of judicial divisions in those areas.
“The Chief Judge of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has delivered on his commitment in that regard.
In order to fulfill his pledge, Hon Justice H. B. Yusuf, Chief Judge of the High Court of the FCT, established the Garki Judicial Division of the court on October 6, 2022, paving the way for the launch of the NBA Garki Branch.
Alternatively, on November 14, 2022, NBA President Maikyau SAN approved Obioma Ezenwobodo’s executive leadership as the branch’s substantive chairman and other committee members as members of the Executive Committee.
