Excerpts from the Speech:
Adesina Adegbite popularly known as (AA) and and the leading candidate in the race for the office of the General Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has warned candidates, especially his opponents who are using religion to campaign, to desist from doing so forthwith. While delivering his goodwill message at the MULAN NEC Meeting held at the National Mosque in Abuja, AA said it is a dangerous and unfortunate development that an aspirant for the enviable position of General Secretary could resort to blackmail and campaign of calumny rather than focus on the content of his manifesto. According to AA, he is aware that a particular candidate for General Secretary has been going about using religion to campaign and thereby whipping sentiments rather than selling his candidacy. He added that any candidate that uses religion to campaign suffers from chronic inferiority complex.
AA stated further that he will be a General Secretary for “All Nigerian Lawyers” and will manage the NBA Secretariat with the finest efficiency, competence and dedication and birth a Secretariat that enjoys global competitiveness and recognition.
Adesina Adegbite congratulates the National President, Past Presidents, National Officers, NEC Members and all members of MULAN for sustaining the credibility of the Association. He wishes all MULAN NEC members and participants at the NEC meeting journey mercies back to their various destinations.
