According to him, the topic was well chosen as a result of the usual challenges faced by lawyers during and after electioneering.

“I believe that the standard to be maintained by lawyers should continuously be improved, in order to guarantee the survival and advancement of our polity, since every facet of our society look upon lawyers as pacesetters.

“Today’s lawyer must learn to approach and change his attitude towards a positive revolution in legal practice. As lawyers, we must embrace evolving Technology and innovations in order to become Tech- Savvy Attorneys in legal advice and election petitions

Ezeh, noted that “amongst others, lawyers must think of artificial intelligence (AI), innovations, in order to play the expected roles capable of bringing about positive revolutions in matters of elections and election petitions.

The Chairman used the ceremony to highlight some of the feats recorded so far since he took over mantle of leadership if the Association in the area.

He said: “the present Administration in Ezbar, aside the few successes already achieved, after about four months in office, is geared towards producing the first law Journal of the branch, as well as commence the building of a befitting Bar Centre for NBA Ezeagu Branch, hence we need your support, encouragement, and above all, we need your fervent prayers.

Ezeh, thanked members of his Exco for their cooperation, as well as organizing Committee of the event under the Chairmanship of an Enugu based renowned lawyer, Barrister Godwin Onwusi, for a job well done.

” I would like to conclude by urging every one of us to be steadfast and take up the challenge towards repositioning ourselves for positive revolution in Nigeria, stressing that he is not oblivious of the fact that if the nation’s lawyers are repositioned towards positive revolution, Nigeria’s judicial and political atmosphere will be greatly enhanced.
