An aspirant for the post of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Presidency and former NBA General Secretary, Mr. Jonathan Taidi has said that the submission of his nomination form and accompanying documents was shorn of any razzmatazz in deference to the “tenor of the times.”

Speaking to CITY LAWYER, Taidi also stated that “to lead the Bar at this time requires deep commitment,” adding that “conduct throughout the NBA electioneering process ought to be solemn and dignified, without razzmatazz.”

His words: “Nigeria is troubled, to put it mildly, and to lead the Bar at this time requires deep commitment – not the usual sort of grandstanding. As a result, after deep reflection, I decided to submit my nomination forms to contest for the President of the Bar. However, cognizant of the spirit of the times, I decided to submit my application solo; no photos, no videos, plain and unaccompanied. For me, conduct throughout the NBA electioneering process ought to be solemn and dignified, without razzmatazz, and I hope that considering the tenor of the times, this becomes a template for other professional bodies and the country as a whole.”

CITY LAWYER recalls that the Electoral Committee of the NBA (ECNBA) had slated 4 pm today as deadline for submission of nomination form and accompanying documents. The election to fill the positions in the NBA National Executive Council holds on July 16, 2022.
