The President of the Nigerian Bar Association -NBA, Yakubu Maikyau, says the association would not allow UK lawyers to practice in Nigeria.

This is about the alleged signing of the Enhanced Trade Investment Partnership -ETIP Agreement, between the governments of Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

The senior lawyer stated that the agreement was signed without the consent of the NBA, noting that the association will continue to oppose any agreement that will compromise the country’s legal space.

Maikyau also urged President Bola Tinubu to declare a state of emergency over the alleged insecurity that has bedevilled the country in alarming proportions. While urging the Federal Government to adopt a holistic approach towards insecurity, Maikyau advised on the need to invest in security personnel in the country.

The senior lawyer also called on the need to reform the justice sector and restore confidence in the judiciary by the discipline of any member of the profession seen to be found wanting in the course of his or her duty.
