The NBA election was NOT fraudulent but it was unorganised

I have to state that,I did not vote for Paul Usoro in the election and I did not vote for Arthur Obi-Okafor .

I have been reading with dismay the events that followed the declaration of Paul Usoro SAN as the President of the  NBA and  i find it disturbing.

A group of lawyers who supported Arthur Obi-Okafor are trying to set the bar on fire because of their desperation.That will not happen.I find their behaviour recalcitrant. Continue reading The NBA election was NOT fraudulent but it was unorganised

My Response To Olumuyiwa Olowokure Esq’s Preliminary Report on NBA Election. Victor Abasiakan Ekim

I have read the Preliminary Report that was prepared and released by Mr. Olumuyiwa Olowokure, the Leader of the Arthur Obi Okafor, SAN’s Technical Team, alleging irregularities that the Team purportedly identified in the just concluded NBA Elections.  In the Report, Mr. Olowokure attempts to rubbish the NBA Elections and calls on “the current leadership of NBA to act and cancel this fault laden process that declared Paul Usoro SAN the winner of the election”.  Continue reading My Response To Olumuyiwa Olowokure Esq’s Preliminary Report on NBA Election.

Just in-Olowokure’s preliminary release confirmed as fake

hhLawyers should disregard the false stories being peddled by Muyiwa Olowokure on behalf of the Arthur Obi Okafor Team(AOO Team)

Paul Usoro SAN has emerged as the President of the Nigerian Bar association and the majority of lawyers across the country are excited about it.

A Paul Usoro presidency will mean a stop to business as usual and that is why a negligible few in the legal profession are desperately staging pockets of resistance to the outcome of the election. The reason behind it is easy to understand. They have worked hard with hopes of juicy appointments and beneficial involvement in the activities of the NBA. Unfortunately, that will not happen.

NBA Election: Lawyers Condemn another desperate scheme against Paul Usoro

What a group of lawyers supporting a particular presidential candidate in the NBA election want to achieve with a petition by Mrs Kehinde  Dunmole dated the 13th of August 2018 when they posted it on facebook is apparent to those who know their leanings and appalling to those who do not know them. They are strong supporters of one of the Presidential Candidates running for the election of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Uplifting the NBA to Gold Standard-Kunle Edison

The extraordinary heritage of gold is one with unique qualities. As an enduring element found naturally in a distinct yellow color, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. It is learnt, gold is very strong, it is also the most malleable of all precious metals, and this is how I see one of the presidential aspirant to the NBA Continue reading Uplifting the NBA to Gold Standard-Kunle Edison
