He also stated that the NBA-SBL has, at its apex, an Executive Committee currently chaired by Dr. Adeoye Adefulu, Managing Partner at Odujinrin and Adefulu and other experienced committee members, using sector-focused committees that cover existing and new areas of commercial law practice in Nigeria.

To ensure that the conference is successful, Adu said: “the NBA-SBL has appointed Ayoyinka Olajide-Awosedo, Partner at Aarndale Solicitors and Ose Okpeku, Partner at The Law Crest LLP as Chairman and Vice Chairman, respectively for the 2023 Conference Planning Committee. Ayoyinka Olajide-Awosedo sits on the Executive Committee of the NBA-SBL as the Treasurer while Ose Okpeku is Chairman, NBA-SBL Employment and Industrial Relations Committee. The appointment of the duo underscores the NBA-SBL’s commitment to delivering a world-class conference.
