The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to utilise his first 100 days in office to come up with strategies on how to frontally confront the problems of infrastructural deficiency, unemployment, insecurity, pervasive corruption, revenue leakages and persistent scarcity of Petroleum products.

This call was made by the association in a press statement it issued in Abuja on Friday to commemorate Democracy Day in Nigeria.

The NBA congratulated President Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, for their successful inauguration and also thanked former President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat after the presidential election.

“The act of conceding defeat at the Presidential elections even before the official announcement of the election results greatly helped to douse rising tensions in Nigeria and has reserved for him in Nigerian history, a place of honour as a statesman”, the NBA said.

The umbrella body of lawyers in the country, however, said the inability of Jonathan’s administration to pass into law the Petroleum Industry Bill, the Prisons Reforms Act and the Police (Amendment) Act and several other Justice sector Bills, represented low points for his administration.

The statement, signed by the National President of the Association, Mr. Augustine Alegeh, SAN, reads: “We celebrate today not just our democracy day but also a change of Government from one Political party to another.

“It is a unique and first time experience and celebration in our democratic experience. It confirms that our democracy is not just growing and developing but it is also maturing.

“We must as a people celebrate our collective success in the peaceful conduct of the 2015 General elections. The massive voter turnout and peaceful conduct of the elections are reflective of our true nature as a peaceful nation.

“The NBA congratulates the victorious candidates at the 2015 General elections and commends other candidates who were not successful at the elections for their offer of service to Nigeria. We trust that the elected candidates appreciate the trust imposed in them and the hope and expectations of the electorate for a better Nigeria where the good of the majority of Nigerians is the guiding principle of Government.


“The NBA commends the outgoing President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR for the peaceful conduct of the 2015 General Elections, which were adjudged largely credible and were reflective of the true wishes of majority of Nigerians”.
