The Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) has released a video to enlighten eligible voters on how to engage in the verification exercise.

The 2:22 minutes long video outlines the step-by-step procedure required to complete the verification exercise on the NBA website.

It is recalled that the electoral committee had in its latest statement on the forthcoming NBA Elections extended the deadline for verification from July 20, 2020 to July 26, 2020, apparently in a bid to ensure that eligible voters are not disenfranchised due to their inability to verify.

The statement reads:


The ECNBA has observed that in the wake of the publication of its Statement No.14 extending the date of verification of Voters, there has been a huge increase in the number of Lawyers seeking to carry out their verification on the NBA Portal. The ECNBA has therefore decided to give a further extension of the date for verification of Voters.

The deadline for verification of Voters is now extended to 6.00PM on Sunday 26th July 2020. Eligible Voters are advised to take advantage of this further extension to get verified. Previously verified voters are required to log in to their portals and update their information, especially their contact details to ensure they have smooth access to the portal and are able to receive important information pertaining to the Voting exercise.

The NBA Help desks are still available to provide support for the verification exercise for those who require same.

Thank you all for your continued cooperation.

Dated this 20th day of July 2020.

Cordelia U. Eke (Mrs.)
Secretary, ECNBA
