An aspirant for the post of Assistant General Secretary in the forthcoming Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Elections, Mr. Abdussalam Mohammed Saleh has said that he would not challenge his disqualification by the Electoral Committee of the NBA (ECNBA).
In a statement made available to CITY LAWYER, Saleh, who is currently the Welfare Secretary of NBA Unity Bar Abuja Branch and former member of NBA Ungogo Branch Human Rights Committee, said that he has “taken my disqualification in good faith.”
The statement reads:
‘I ACCEPT MY DISQUALIFICATION BY ECNBA, I WON’T APPEAL,’ SAYS SALEH
This weekend, l received with shock an email from the Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) informing me of my disqualification as an aspirant for the position of Assistant General Secretary in the forthcoming NBA Elections scheduled to hold on July 16, 2022.
This was not the outcome l had expected when l filed my nomination to contest for the post. I had sought to offer myself as part of a team to revolutionize the NBA Secretariat and make it more member friendly. I was therefore deeply disappointed at this unfortunate outcome.
However, the unity of the Bar is more paramount than my personal ambition. Accordingly, l have taken my disqualification in good faith. I shall not challenge it.
Further, l am ready to serve and support whoever emerges as NBA President in any capacity my services may be needed.
I thank my numerous supporters for the confidence reposed in me, and urge them not to relent in their quest for a Better Bar! It is also imperative that we all elect competent, disciplined and honest National Officers who can sustain the gains made by the Akpata Administration.
