Dear Obong Paul,
Greetings, and many thanks for forwarding to me and several others your communication to Professor Earnest Ojukwu SAN and Arthur Obi-Okafor SAN.
May I congratulate you once again for you victory in the contest for election as President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA). I pray that the Almighty and Eternal God may grant you wisdom, health and strength to enable you discharge the duties of your high office.
May I also commend you for being magnanimous in your victory. This is what we all expect, and I hope you will carry on with the same spirit of magnanimity when you assume office as President of our once and for ever great Association.
I have taken due notice of your invitation to your co-contestants to join hands with you in the well running of the NBA. I will do my best to convince them to heed your very timely call.
Best wishes for every success during your tenure of office, and God bless.
Yours ever sincerely,
