‘I Have Not Resigned,’ Yadudu Tells City Lawyer
Chairman of the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) has told CITY LAWYER that he has not resigned his appointment.
There was anxiety today on the position of the embattled electoral committee chairman when a letter emerged claiming that he has resigned his position as ECNBA Chairman.
However, when CITY LAWYER telephoned the cerebral scholar and Law teacher on the letter as reported on the social media, he said: “It is fake.”
Asked whether he was still in-charge, he said: “Yes, I am. I am in a meeting now.”
When CITY LAWYER again asked whether he penned a disclaimer circulating on the social media, he queried the content of the text.
When CITY LAWYER read portions of the text to the ECNBA Chairman, he confirmed authorship, promising to send the text to CITY LAWYER.
The disclaimer read: “Just read a report by your online publication (not CITY LAWYER) that l have resigned. You matched your fake news with a fake letter ascribed to me. This is absolutely false. I don’t know how people would go to such irresponsible extent to publish a figment of their imaginations. I expected that if you are in receipt of any such letter, the least a professional journalist would do in the circumstances would be to verify it from me. You chose to violate a cardinal professional duty. You published a forgery. Please l demand an immediate retraction. Prof Yadudu”
CITY LAWYER gathered that Yadudu is presently in a meeting with stakeholders to resolve some issues regarding the troubled elections.
