Joyce Oduah, FICMC, Endorses Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, for President of the Nigerian Bar Association

My Distinguished friends, seniors, supporters and colleagues

I profoundly thank you all for your unwavering solidarity and commitment towards my candidacy for the Nigerian Bar Association Presidency.

Despite the recent developments resulting in my inability to proceed with my presidential candidacy, my commitment to the development of the NBA remains unshaken. In this vein, after extensive consultations with my team and supporters, we have made a collective decision to wholeheartedly endorse another highly qualified candidate. This candidate not only shares the same vision and values for the advancement of the Nigerian Bar as captured in my Manifesto but also embodies them in his every action.

After careful consideration and for the progress of our beloved Association, we are thrilled to announce our support for Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, for the office of the President of the NBA. Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, exemplifies the integrity, maturity, and professional excellence that befit the high office of NBA president. We are convinced he will apply these shared values to create a more progressive, effective, efficient, inclusive, and transparent Bar. We will collectively rally behind Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, to realise our collective vision.

I cannot thank you enough for your continued support for me and dedication towards the betterment of our association and the legal profession at large.

Warmest regards,
