The political fortunes of Mr. Dele Adesina, one of the presidential candidates in the forthcoming Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) National Election, brightened today as the influential Arewa Lawyers Forum (ALF) has adopted him for the presidential race.

In a letter dated 24th July, 2020 and signed by the forum’s Secretary, Mr. Mohammed Monguno, the ALF referred to a letter from Egbe Amofin Oodua dated 20th March, 2020 recommending Adesina to the forum.


The ALF stated that “we took time to consult very widely,” adding that “Accordingly, on behalf of the leadership and members of Arewa Lawyers Forum and after a meeting of our Executive Committee, I have the honour to hereby convey our adoption, endorsement, satisfaction and the unanimous acceptance of the candidature of MR. DELE ADESINA SAN, FCIArb for the Office of the President of the Nigerian Bar Association in the forthcoming July 2020 Election.”

The NBA Election is slated to hold on 29th and 30th July, 2020.
