The Nigeria Bar Association ( NBA ) will hold its national elections on August 6.
Its President, Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud (SAN) disclosed this at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.
Mahmoud said the elections has been scheduled between midnight on August 6 (when the voting portal would be opened) and midnight on August 8 (when the portal would be shot).
He assured that all necessary measures have been taken to ensure a transparent electoral process that will meet the expectation of all members.
Mahmoud added that although national elections were always held in July, the decision to conduct this year’s exercise in August was informed by some developments that required the attention of NBA leadership.
“The delay has nothing to do with the competence of the NBA, the Electoral Committee or that of the technological services providers. It was as a result of the several issues raised by some members, which we found necessary to address,” Mahmoud said.
