Arthur Obi_Okafor, SAN Condoles With NBA Port Harcourt Branch Over Demise Of Her Members E.B Ukiri And Nkoli Awa


    It is with profound shock that I learnt of the untimely demise of two of our members; Blessing Emonena Ukiri Esq and Lady Nkolika Ifeoma Awa both of the Port Harcourt branch of our noble association, which sad event took place recently.
    The late E. B. Ukiri as was fondly called in the legal community was a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice President of the NBA at various times. He was a consummate bar man; one of personal convictions who believed and held to his convictions tenaciously.He was fearless in his beliefs without making a pretence and always rose in stout defence of every views, he subscribed to.
    Mrs. Nkoli Awa was another strong member of Nigerian Bar Association and also the International Bar Association. She was a quintessential bar person who no doubt contributed in her own unique ways to the development of law practice in our society.
    My condolences go to their families, colleagues and associates, the Port Harcourt branch of NBA and the entire legal community in the country. May the Almighty grant our departed colleagues eternal rest.
    Arthur Obi Okafor (SAN).
