4,000 Ghost Voters Participated In NBA Election - South-West Lawyers' Forum by ikorodureporta: 9:36am On Aug 05, 2020
THE South-West Lawyers’ Forum, popularly known as Egbe Amofin, has rejected the result of last week national election of the Nigerian Bar Association, alleging manipulation.

In an August 1, 2020 communiqué signed by the Chairman of its Steering Committee, Chief Niyi Akintola (SAN), and Secretary, Dr Oluwole Akintayo, Egbe Amofin claimed that 4,000 ‘ghost voters’ were smuggled into the voters’ register.

The Egbe Amofin also alleged the “creation of an International Diaspora Branch of the NBA for voting – a phenomenon that is strange and unknown to the NBA constitution.”

Mr Dele Adesina (SAN), who was the consensus presidential candidate of the Egbe Amofin, came third in the election, which was won by Mr Olumide Akpata.

Another Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Dr Babatunde Ajibade, who disagreed with Egbe Amofin on the adoption of Adesina as consensus presidential candidate of the South-West lawyers, came second in the election.

In its communiqué, which was made available on Tuesday, the Egbe Amofin said the return of Akpata as the winner of the election by the Electoral Committee of the NBA was unlawful and violated the NBA constitution, given the alleged irregularities.

The Egbe Amofin said, “Over 4000 ‘voters’ appeared on the emergency voters’ list used for the election and these ghost voters have no identifiable branches or are not linked or traceable to any branch.”

The Egbe Amofin added that as of the time the electronic election ended at 11pm last Thursday, not less than 13,000 of the 29,636 lawyers accredited had not voted.

It said with the alleged huge unlawful disenfranchisement of voters, even the Independent National Electoral Committee, which was randomly criticised, would not have declared any candidate winner the way the ECNBA did.

So we now have ghost voters, not just only ghost workers? Very soon we will have ghost looters. Well your NBA election has come and gone...I expect you lawyers who are disgruntled to take your case to the appropriate channel cos we don't need disturbance here. Afterall you call yourselves 'learned colleagues', so handle your issues appropriately...its not even as though because ghost voters voted, you produced a ghost NBA president.

We were not able to vote despite making frantic calls to the electoral committee even with payment of all practicing fees.
I am not bothered about who won but our inability to cast votes.
We are advocating for electronic voting in our national elections, I hope APC and PDP won't start strategizing using NBA as case study embarassed

What should we give them? E-slaps perhaps
