“Two years ago, when I came on board, I had a slogan then that ‘Ilorin Bar, New Age’. Ilorin NBA is now digitalised.

“I can say authoritatively, say that none of the more than 130 branch of the NBA has e-library and gym centre, the judiciary will learn from us just as the CJ has said. Work is now made easy even at this Coronavirus period with the e-library,” Akande said.

The NBA chairman said that he was able to run crisis free association due to the cooperation of the members.

A former chairman of NBA, Mallam Yusuf Ali (SAN), called for unity among members.

“We make all manners of arguments in court, that could have literally affected our relationship, but after the proceedings, we still meet at the bar chat.

“Life is more beautiful than keeping malice and grudges, we should learn to maintain oneness, cases will go, but relationship should remain,” he said.

The Chief Judge of the State, Justice Saidu Kawu, urged members of the Bar to maintain and judiciously use the facilities.

A beneficiary, Mrs Okegbenro Oluwatoyin, commended the leadership of the association for the gesture.

“I am very happy and is like am dreaming, I am a mother of two and I use bike to carry my children to school, but now God has done it. No more bike in my life,” she said.
