The Body of Senior Advocates of Nigeria has commended a presidential candidate in the last general elections of the Nigerian Bar Association, Dele Adesina (SAN), for not going to court to challenge the outcome.

Adesina, who came third in the NBA presidential poll won by Olumide Akpata, had described the election as a shame and called for its cancellation.

After his call for the cancellation of the poll was dismissed by the NBA Electoral Committee, Adesina proceeded before the NBA Board of Trustees, which admitted that the election was not perfect but said it lacked the powers to cancel it.

Rather, the NBA Board of Trustees also told Adesina that cancelling the election would not be in the best interest of the association.

The Body of Senior Advocates, in a communiqué released after its virtual meeting of September 5, “commended Deacon Adesina for his decision to accept the verdict of the Board of Trustees of the NBA on the 2020 NBA elections and not to contest the result of the said election in court.”
