The Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association, ECNBA, has published the profiles of the candidates in the July 2020 NBA elections.

In accordance with the provisions of the Nigerian Bar Association Constitution 2015 (as Amended) and upon the conclusion of nominations, screening and appeals processes, the ECNBA presents the full list of properly candidates cleared to contest the NBA National Officers Elections for the year 2020.

Following the expression of interest by candidates, the ECNBA initially granted provisional clearance to 24 out of the 43 aspirants nominated for various offices and rejected the nominations of 19 Aspirants. The Committee later heard Appeals from 18 of the 19 aspirants on their merits. Some of the Appeals succeeded, while others failed and one was withdrawn. The Committee also considered petitions against some aspirants, leading to the withdrawal of the provisional clearance previously granted one of the Candidates. Having concluded the Appeals process, the ECNBA now presents a list of 28 candidates cleared to contest various offices in the NBA National Officers Elections 2020.

Further to the above, the ECNBA requests every cleared Candidate to submit  an A4 size copy of his/her curriculum vitae (of not more than 4 pages), a comprehensive manifesto and other campaign materials (all in electronic form) on or before 6:00PM on Monday 6th July 2020, for upload on the NBA website.

For the avoidance of doubt, campaigns can only be carried out by publication of campaign materials supplied to the ECNBA to be hoisted on the NBA website. Travelling across the country to solicit for votes is prohibited.

It should be emphasized that candidates are bound to strictly comply with provisions of the Nigerian Bar Association Constitution 2015 (as amended) and the ECNBA Guidelines with respect to their conduct and that of their supporters, in the course of the electioneering process. Any violation of these will be severely sanctioned including disqualification from contesting the elections.

The candidates’ profiles can be seen on https://nigerianbar.org.ng/election-candidates, by clicking on the candidate’s name.
