RESIGN, IF YOU CANNOT RUN THE CHAMBER - Nta Bassey Duke (Former Advocate General, Advocacy Chambers)



By Aluzu Ebikebuna Augustine

The former Advocate General of Advocacy International Chambers Barr. Nta Bassey Duke has made his position known on the controversy rocking the Chambers in recent times.

Speaking exclusively to REVOLUTIONARY YOUTHS, Nta cautioned that it will be wiser to float another Chambers in lieu of changing the name of Advocacy Chambers. He insisted that Advocacy Chambers is a household name within the Faculty and was floated in line with the dreams of the founding fathers.

He said "I am very much displeased about the news of some members and ex-officio of the Chambers attempting to alter the name of the Chambers

"Need I remind them that Advocacy international Chambers is a household name in the Faculty of Law university of Uyo

"This is a Chambers that has produced best graduating students and plethora of LAWSAN Presidents. It has also produced lecturers in the Faculty in person of Dr. Etefia Ekanem, Barr. Mary Udofia, Barr. Ekokoi Solomon, Mrs Mfon Jonah. I wonder if these persons have been consulted before this making this suicidal move.

When asked what he think might have led to the sudden decision of the current Executives to alter the legal character of the chambers, Nta said

"Greed is the only logical explanation for this

"Advocacy international chamber is a chamber that is run like a church. We do not only depend on God to provide source, we also source for funds

"When I was the AG of the chamber, I sourced for funds to host dinner, my predecessors all hosted dinners and they sourced for fund without selling the Chambers

"Any AG who is not capable of running the chamber should resign and save us the embarrassment of altering the name of the chamber. He added.

Also commenting on the issue is Barr. Gregory Daniel, who REVOLUTIONARY YOUTHS contacted on phone. Barr. Greg, a one time member of the Chambers Said he was not aware of the move and he is not in any way in support of the plan to alter the character of the Chambers.
