Dele Adesina Wants NBA Election Cancelled As Akpata Maintains Lead by Omooba77: 10:13pm On Jul 30, 2020
One of three presidential candidates in the Nigerian Bar Association national elections, Dele Adesina (SAN), has called for the cancellation of the poll, describing the exercise as a sham.

In the electronic poll, which began at 11pm on Wednesday and is scheduled to end by 11pm on Thursday, Adesina was picking the rear with 3,730 votes as of 8.17pm.

A former Chairman of the NBA Section on Business Law, Olumide Akpata, was in the lead with 9,277 votes; while the third candidate, Dr Babatunde Ajibade (SAN), was in the middle with 4,063 votes.

Out the total 29,636 accredited voters, 17,174 had cast their votes as of 8.17pm.

Adesina’s call for the cancellation of the elections came few hours to the end of the exercise.

In a petition to the Chairman of the Electoral Committee of the NBA, Chief Tawo Tawo (SAN), Adesina alleged that the voter register contained “grave errors of omission and commission,” including the existence of “names of purported lawyers without branches ascribed to them from Serial Number 25171 to 29635.”

He added, “Several cases of reported disenfranchisement by members whose names were not on the list. A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who contacted the helpline line to lodge his complaint, was told that it is because he did not have his SAN’s number. Query! Is SAN’s number a requirement?

“Issues were also raised on the security of the NBA Membership Portal.”

He stated, “I call on you Mr Chairman and members of the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association to cancel this sham election.


“It is needless to say that if the process is bad, the product cannot be good. Thank you.”

You want it cancelled cos you aren't leading nor likely to win abi? Some persons just lack the spirit of sportsmanship. If you have lost this one, you can wait for the next election or you sit your ass down as the head of your family. Afterall that one too is headship.

Nigeria politicians for you
No opportunity to snatch ballot boxes.
This is what Nigeria should be clamoiring for; Electronic voting and less of blood flow. God bless Nigeria.

I tell you my brother. They wanted to disqualified for not being a SAN, but no where in constitution says President must sorely be a SAN.

The Non- SAN members are more than SANs. It is expected that most lawyers will vote for Akpata

The foundation of election is voters register, if there is any NBA member that is up to date and is unable to find his name in the voters register, such a person is free to complain.

If things were fair I doubt if he would raise an eyebrow. What do you expect from emphatically corrupt nation that breed, and eat corruption.

Yay! I hope all our efforts, esp. New wigs won't be for nothing. I too believe in Ajibades' dream for every lawyer.
Ajibade would have won if not for the plans of the Grey hairs in the bar, esp. SAN's to make the office of thee NBA chairman sacred only for SAN's.

If another NBA election is conducted, Olu will still win. None of these SAN cares about the young lawyers. This is a tech age. We the young lawyers rule it in legal industry.


Some old lawyers cant be able to download an app from playstore not to talk of knowing how to log into NBA portal

The question is, could Akpata's landslide victory be overturned even if the votes of all those he said were disenfranchised are awarded to him?

A non-SAN beating a SAN in an election of that magnitude is a dent on the ego of the SAN. Junior lawyers campaigned for Olumide Akpata and he granted an interview to discuss his plans. Did Debo Adesina SAN campaign publicly? So because he is a SAN, he must win the election against someone who articulated his ideas as much as possible?
