Former Oyo State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Seun Abimbola SAN has been named as the Chairman of the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA).

Abimbola is also a former NBA Ibadan Branch Chairman and the immediate past Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice (NBA-SLP).

The ECNBA is saddled with the all-important role of being the referee for the forthcoming NBA Elections holding in July 2024.

CITY LAWYER gathered that Maikyau also listed Mr. Abdullahi Yahaya SAN, Eno Ubong, Akexander Odiette and Huwaila Ibrahim as members of the committee.

The list of ECNBA members has also received a nod from the NBA  National Executive Council at its meeting today.

A source at NBA HOUSE told CITY LAWYER that the list was one of the best-kept secrets within the NBA Presidency.

Though the source said that ECNBA membership was one of the items listed to be discussed by NBA National Officers at their marathon pre-NEC meeting which held on Tuesday and Wednesday, intervening engagements did not enable the officers to exhaust the agenda.

As a result, CITY LAWYER gathered that none of the National Officers was privy to the list until it was announced to NBA-NEC.

The NBA Election is usually keenly contested, even as many aspirants have started to strategically position themselves for the electoral battle ahead.

Among those gunning for the coveted post of NBA President are Mr. Afam Osigwe SAN, Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN, Mr. Tobenna Erojikwe and Mrs. Joyce Oduah.
