Clerics offers prayer for lawyers as NBA 2017 commences
As the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) 2017 conference begins today, Christian and Muslim prayers have been offered for participating lawyers.
On Friday, Fidal prayers for the conference was held at the Central Mosque, Lagos Island, while Christian prayers was offered yesterday (Sunday) at the Cathedral Church of Christ Marina.
NBA Chairman, Abubakar Mahmoud, Chairman local organising committee, Lawal Pedro, SAN and other top Muslim members of the association attended the Muslim prayer service, while 2nd Vice-President, Monday Ubani on Sunday led Christian members of the association to the church service.
At the church service, Reverend Sunday Ogundipe charged all parishioners, including the NBA members, not to abandon their faith for the things of the world.
He said that more Christians now succumb to secularism and charged them to stand up for their faith.
However, Islamic Alhaji Engr Shakiru Gafar on his part admonished NBA members not to abandon morality in the pursuit of the profession.
Gafar stated that lawyers are the voice of the voiceless and must not jettison that responsibility for mundane things.
