Following the release of Election Time Table for conduct of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Makurdi Branch General elections, friends of Mr. Kelvin Iorzenda of Elohim Chambers have picked the Nomination Form for him to contest the forthcoming Branch General Elections for the post of Branch Secretary.

Led by Chief John Tyoapine, the current Vice Chairman of the Branch and Mr. J. T. Damsa among several other reputable lawyers, the friends obtained the form at the office of Mr. Oche Obande of Ocha P. Ulegede & Co at exactly 1:30 pm on 9th April, 2024.

Immediately after the purchase of the form, Mrs. Marilyn Okechukwu was appointed as the Campaign Director General (DG) while Mr. James Ewureje is the Deputy Director General (DDG).

Speaking during a sit-out that followed purchase of the form, Mrs. Okechukwu and Mr. Ewureje extolled the virtues of the aspirant, noting that he has served the Makurdi Bar in various capacities and is now ripe to be the Chief Scribe of the Branch. The Director General promised to run an issue-based campaign without bitterness and rancour.

In his appreciation speech, Mr. Iorzenda expressed gratitude to all his friends and supporters for their show of love and encouraged them to be respectful to one another in their campaigns as they were first colleagues before being ‘Bar politicians.’

In their separate speeches, supporters at the event including Mrs. Awashima Addingi, a Director at the Ministry of Justice, Makurdi; Messrs Tsembelee Daniel Sorkaa, Gideon Dandi, Geoffrey Iorvenda, Moses Lubem Ukpo, Ferdinand Akwacha and several others promised to give their full support to Mr. Iorzenda. They prayed God to grant him his heart’s desires including resounding victory in the forthcoming Branch elections.
