The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Tuesday insisted that its conference scheduled to take place in Owerri, Imo State capital, would go ahead despite warning that gathering of people should be avoided to curtail the spread of Ebola Virus Disease.
A statement issued by the association's president, Okey Wali, SAN said that over 10, 000 lawyers were expected at the event.
Wali said that the association and the Imo State Government have put measures in place to prevent the spread of the disease.
President Goodluck Jonathan is expected to open the session.
He said the association had purchased hand bacterial and viral sanitizers which would be given to every conferee for usage throughout the conference.
