The National President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Augustine Alegeh (SAN), says any member found to be professionally wanting in the discharge of his duties will be made to face disciplinary actions.

Mr Alegeh said this during the National Executive Committee meeting organised to take stock of the bar in the judicial process in the country and make far reaching decisions.

The NBA President told Channels Television that the bar was re-positioned to work with the new Justice Minister to strengthen the justice system in the country.

The acting Chief Justice in Rivers State, Justice Daisy Okocha, believed the judiciary would be more effective without political interference.

The two-day meeting was flagged off by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State’s capital in Nigeria’s southern region. (Channels TV)
