The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Security Agencies Relations Committee (NBA-SARC), Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN has submitted his nomination form and accompanying documents for the coveted position of NBA President in the forthcoming NBA National Officers Election.

A statement made available to CITY LAWYER shows that the former Chairman of the NBA Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL) arrived the Electoral Committee of the NBA (ECNBA) Secretariat at about 3:42 pm yesterday to submit the form in compliance with the Electoral Guidelines. The statement noted that many admirers of the leading litigator accompanied and cheered him on during the submission exercise.

According to the statement, “The Learned Silk giving his final remarks further appreciated the presence of teeming supporters and jokingly closed with a teaser, saying that, although the discussion had ended, just like the Honda Car, the discussion would continue. As usual, the jovial Bar Patriot elicited hearty laughs from all who were present amidst cheers of approval and accolades.

“Whilst exiting the premises, the Learned Silk was excused for an exclusive interview wherein he reiterated the importance of a good, all-inclusive and focused visionary leadership of the Bar.” He added that “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. Our electoral process must set the pace and trend for the political class of our society to emulate… And this is our dream and vision, because life is not how much you acquire or own but how much impact you’re able to make on the lives of others.”

The Director-General of Vox Populi Foundation for Leadership, Chief Prince Chukwudi Oli thanked the supporters “who took out time from their busy schedules to support the vision of the Learned Silk.”

The NBA National Officers Election holds on July 16, 2022.
