Branch Leaders Appeal To Mr President On Bar Practising Fees - NBA

Preceding the decision of the NBA National on their unwillingness to pay the 10 percent Bar practicing fees accruing to the Ikorodu NBA branch for reasons unknown to the Branch members; the branch leaders appealed to the National to reconsider its unilateral decision.

The Ikorodu NBA branch secretary who spoke out at the just concluded Annual General Meeting appealed further to Mr. Paul Usoro, SAN, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association to reconsider his decision.

It has been 2 weeks since the appeal of the Secretary of the NBA Ikorodu Branch on the floor of the AGM but nothing has been to remedy the situation as the funds are yet to be released to into the Branch account.

Hence the Chairman of the Ikorodu NBA, Bayo Akinlade has taken the initiative to write a message to the President via his whatsapp handle seeking the said money to be paid up for the welfare of the branch members that are entitled to the funds.

Below is the excerpt of the message by the chairman;

Message to  NBA President regarding UNPAID 10% TO NBA IKORODU BRANCH
Good morning Mr. President. Greetings to you and happy weekend. 
I respectfully request that the 10% due to NBA Ikorodu Branch be paid by the treasurer.
The funds belong to the members of the branch who dutifully paid their BPF as at  when due. 
It will interest you to know that our branch members actually benefit DIRECTLY from the payment of thier dues. 
The 10% goes to our welfare account from which we provide free monthly medical check ups for members. 
We thank you for your prompt response in this matter. 
Kind RegardsBayo Akinlade Esq Chairman, NBA Ikorodu Branch
