Court nullifies Nigerian Bar Association 2015 Constitution

The Federal High Court in Abuja has nullify the Constitution of the Nigerian Bar Association NBA, declaring it null and void.

However, the court judgement has been appealed by the leadership of the NBA, who sought a stay of execution to Justice John Tsoho’s judgement.

The judgement had held that the amended NBA Constitution, under which the present executive was elected, breached Section 597 and 598 of the Company and Allied Matters Act, especially as it relates to the registration of the amended constitution.

But a Court of Appeal in Abuja has granted a stay of execution on Justice Tsoho’s judgement.
