As earlier reported by The New Diplomat, the drama has started surfacing in the ongoing Nigerian Bar Association’s NBA National officers Election as one of the candidates in the election, Julius Oladele Adesina, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN has described the election as “a Sham” which must be canceled.
Adesina made this known in a letter, to the Electoral Committee Nigerian Bar Association, ECNBA Chairman, Tawo Tawo, SAN.
He cited massive irregularities, disenfranchisement, and manipulation of the voting site as data uploaded to the site was programmed and preconfigured.
“Our ICT consultants have informed us that though the voting site ostensibly appears to be credible on the surface, it appears the data uploaded to the site was programmed and pre-configured to achieve a desired result in an obvious case of data diddling. Consequently, we have every cause to query the data uploaded in the voting site as the same appears to have an imprint of a manipulated poll. Several members of some of the branch where our candidate has huge support including Ikeja, Enugu, Ilorin branches did not receive voting links for the election” he said.
As a result, Adesina called for the cancelation of the election.
I call on you Mr. Chairman and Members of the Electoral Committee to cancel this sham election. It is needless to say that if the process is bad, the product cannot be good.
