Change is in the young, the future depends on how the young generation turn out to be tomorrow. NBA Kaduna branch is currently passing through an unhealthy crisis not beneficial to young lawyers in the jurisdiction, which is why this young lawyer {i.e this writer} thought it wise to use this medium to reach out to young lawyers in the jurisdiction to express their own constructive opinion about the prevalent issue.
“Divorcing myself from all opinions and decisions that some few individuals try to impose on us. From my own observation the problem of the branch is above the chairman and his Executive Committee, the problem is inherent in the branch, even so I still blame the young lawyers for allowing themselves to be moved or rather pushed to take sides. The NBA Kaduna branch is our right and our inheritance so we shouldn’t help in destroying it,” E.K Tarfa Esq
“It is no longer news that NBA Kaduna branch has been in serious crisis since the inception of the Chairman Anthony Auditz Iroagalachi Esq, the branch is fractionized into different groups for and against the incumbent chairman and this is slowing the progress of the branch. I want to use this opportunity to appeal to both aggrieved party to put aside their differences and come together to find a lasting solutions,” Lawrence Bassey Esq
“The looming crisis in the branch started like a speck in the eye but it has turned into a log. As a young lawyer it’s really sad to note that the crisis has taken the branch backwards not minding who is either right or wrong. I urge the senior members of the BAr to bring back sanity to the branch,” Fumen Gandu Esq
“… unfortunately the impasse or crisis that has rocked the branch is the most unfortunate just at a time we all wanted consolidation. It is sad that young lawyers have exhibited a great level of ignorance in handling the situation. Just as the saying goes , ‘when two elephants fight the grass suffers’ young lawyers in the branch are the most hit in this crisis considering the fact that we have all at stake as the future of the BAR. On a sober note, we are the future and what we do today will speak tomorrow for or against us,” C.J Nwogu Esq
“I am not really informed about the underlining issues and frankly speaking, am not interested because the crisis in the branch is deeper than it seems, however for me to have a constructive opinion I would like to hear from both sides,” Kelechi Nnodim Esq
“The crisis in the branch is appalling and there is no gainsaying that the underlining issues are counter- productive and has devalued the sanctity for which the branch is famous. In my considered counsel, the aggrieved party should strike a balance so that the interest of the BAR is ultimately restored,” Desmond D. Tabakwot Esq
From the above, one can only conclude that young lawyers in the jurisdiction are bothered with the way things are playing out in the branch and would be happy if all differences can be set aside for the future of the BAR.
To this writer, the three man committee sent by the national body in a bid to find an amicable solution to the crisis in the branch should be utilised, let all affected parties bring their terms to the table, let concessions and compromises be made for the interest of the BAR. It is not too late to sheath our swords and ensure that the right thing is done, posterity would be the judge one day.
“Let us make future generations remember us as proud ancestors just as, today, we remember our forefathers,”  Roh Moo-hyun
