The National President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Augustine Alegeh (SAN), has vowed to punish any member found to be corrupt in the discharge of his duties.

Alegeh gave this warning yesterday, during the National Executive Committee meeting organised to take stock of the bar in the judicial process in the country.

According to him, the bar was re-positioning to work with the new Justice Minister to strengthen the justice system in the country.

The acting Chief Judge in Rivers State, Justice Daisy Okocha, believed the judiciary would be more effective without political interference.

The two-day meeting was flagged off by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State’s capital in Nigeria’s southern region.
