ABUJA- New Executives members of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA Monday paid a courtesy visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The visit came at a time the judiciary was having a face-off with the executive arm of government due to the arrest of some court judges over allegations of corruption.

Journalists were barred from covering the proceedings of the meeting which held behind closed doors.

The agenda was not also made public just there was no official at the end of the meeting.

But an enquiry from the media unit of the Vice President’s office said it was a courtesy call on Osinbajo by the new executive of NBA.

“It was a courtesy call. The new NBA officers wanted to meet with him after their elections”, a source said.

It will be recalled Mr. Abubakar Mahmoud emerged the new president of the NBA in an election that held early August this year.

Mahmoud, who bagged a First and Master’s Degrees in Law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, polled 3,055 votes to defeat his rival, Joe-Kyari Gadzama, who got 2,384 votes.
