My distinguished colleagues and teeming supporters, it is with great delight that I announce to you that the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (“ECNBA”) has granted me final clearance to contest for the Office of the General Secretary of the NBA in the 2020 NBA National Elections, scheduled to hold from the 29th – 30th of July, 2020. This is contained in the ECNBA Statement 013, which was released and published on the NBA website in the early hours of today, Saturday, 04 July 2020. I thank God Almighty for making this possible and I thank you too, my teeming supporters, for your unwavering support and sacrifices. Indeed, this is another progress and milestone in our mission to transform the NBA National Secretariat and make it more responsive, robust and forward-looking.
While I appreciate your continued support, I also enjoin you to verify and update your details on the NBA website on or before 15 July 2020, to enable you access the voting portal during the elections. The NBA website has a membership portal for all lawyers who are enrolled at the Supreme Court of Nigeria, similar to the portal on the International Bar Association (“IBA”) website. Verification is completely free and seamless.
To get verified, please visit the NBA Membership Portal on the NBA website or click this link https://nigerianbar.org.ng/membership-portal
Thank you and do have a great weekend.
Joyce Oduah, FICMC
National Treasurer, NBA, 2012-2014.
