Mr. Paul Usoro SAN may be declared winner of the hotly contested NBA Elections, even as his closest rival, Chief Arthur Obi Okafor SAN may have withdrawn from the race, citing “surges of votes in favour of Paul Usoro SAN.”
Sources close to the ECNBA Situation Room said Usoro may coast to victory with less than one hundred votes.
Meanwhile, there are strong indications that Mr. Jonathan Taidi has won the post of General Secretary with a wide margin.
The petition by Arthur Obi Okafor Campaign Directorate reads:
20th August 2018
This is to inform you that having reviewed the events leading up to and during the elections Arthur Obi Okafor SAN states categorically that he withdraws from this election and cannot accept the outcome of the result.
Inexplicable and strange surges of votes in favour of Paul Usoro SAN and the glaring incidences of hijacked votes makes it clear the result of this election cannot stand.
An acceptable participatory post election Audit of International standard will bear out our grievances in this regard.
For Arthur Obi Okafor SAN
