The President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau (SAN), has charged the 62 successful applicants for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria to live above board.

Yakubu Maikyau said “You must upon your investiture, wear your rank with decorum, dignity and character.

“You must be above board in all that you do as advocates and as individuals as you become a standard through which our profession is measured. You must never forget this.

“Once again, I congratulate you and members of your family, many of whom went on these professional journeys with you, on this remarkable attainment and I look forward to working with each of you in the overall interest of the Bar. I look forward to welcoming you to the Inner-Bar.”

The rank of SAN is a culmination of years of ambition, passion and sacrifice, and the elation and fanfare that follows the announcement and investiture make the hard work worthwhile.
