Bar Leaders, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN, Mr. Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau SAN and Mr. Jonathan Gunu Taidi have thrown their hats into the ring to battle for the presidency of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in the forthcoming National Officers Election, CITY LAWYER can authoritatively report.

This confirms CITY LAWYER report that the three gladiators plan to vie for the position of NBA President. The election is slated for July 16, 2022.

While Gadzama and Maikyau stormed the Electoral Committee of the NBA (ECNBA) office with a retinue of supporters, Taidi told CITY LAWYER that he went “unaccompanied.” His words: “No photos, no video, unaccompanied. For me, conduct throughout the NBA electioneering process should be a template for other professional bodies and the country.”

In an interview after submitting his Nomination Form and accompanying documents, Gadzama said: “We must live up to our roles as the watchdog of the society, the eyes of the blind, the eardrums of the deaf and the mouthpiece of the dumb.”

Accompanied by about 77 supporters, Maikyau said in a video sighted by CITY LAWYER: “You know, Sani is my imam. And so we know without a doubt, because what we brought is coming from those that are blessed and is being received by one who is blessed. There is nothing short of victory to come out of it.”

The ECNBA has set 4 pm today as the deadline for submission of nomination forms.
