It is with profound shock that I learnt of the untimely demise
of two of our members; Blessing Emonena Ukiri Esq and Lady Nkolika
Ifeoma Awa both of the Port Harcourt branch of our noble
association, which sad event took place recently.
The late E. B. Ukiri as was fondly called in the legal community
was a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice President of the NBA at various times.
He was a consummate bar man; one of personal convictions who
believed and held to his convictions tenaciously.He was fearless in
his beliefs without making a pretence and always rose in stout
defence of every views, he subscribed to.
Mrs. Nkoli Awa was another strong member of Nigerian Bar
Association and also the International Bar Association. She was a
quintessential bar person who no doubt contributed in her own
unique ways to the development of law practice in our society.
My condolences go to their families, colleagues and associates,
the Port Harcourt branch of NBA and the entire legal community in
the country. May the Almighty grant our departed colleagues eternal
Arthur Obi Okafor (SAN).
