Dankwambo, who was represented by his Deputy, Mr Charles Iliya, commended the NBA for organising the event, saying it provided opportunity for lawyers in the state to interact.

In his address, the chairman, NBA Gombe state chapter, Haruna Sale, urged members of the association to maintain ethical standard of the profession
