The Nigeria Bar Association has expressed concern about the current upheavals in Rivers state, calling on President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene to ensure that the principles of rule of law prevail in resolving the crisis in the state.

The Apex body of lawyers pressed home its point on Thursday at a meeting a delegation of its leaders had with the President at the State House, Abuja.

And so the visits to President Jonathan by Groups; socio-cultural, political and professional continue all offering support for the manner he is steering the ship of governance in the last 2 years.

The Body however is yet to take any punitive action on members of their association who featured prominently in the Rivers House of Assembly brawl as it says it is yet to receive any petitions on the incident.

But the NBA is emphatic about its commitment to sanitize law practice and reduce the incidence of unnecessary delays in the justice system.
