Port Harcourt is a historic City South of Nigeria. The City is as old as most of the ancient Cities around the world and often regarded as the “Garden City” for the fun and breathtaking entertainment it has to offer. It is situated in the Niger Delta, an Oil Rich Region with bustling activities in the Petroleum and Gas Sectors of Nigeria’s Economy. With its colonial past visible almost everywhere coupled with evidence of the struggle for the emancipation of its people and blended with a rich cultural heritage, its network of democratic institutions in present day mixed and monarchical structures makes it a perfect setting for the 2017 Annual Conference of the African Bar Association.
