An Abuja High Court has declared former assistant publicly secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr John Unachukwu as the authentic National Publicity Secretary of the Association.
Mr Unachukwu who was cleared as the only candidate for the office of the Publicity Secretary of the Association during the 2016 national election was later disqualified under very controversial circumstances by the National Electoral Committee of the Association and went ahead to declare the office vacant.
Mr Unachukwu challenged his disqualification and was today returned unopposed as the Publicity Secretary of the Association by Hon. Justice Yusuf Halilu of FCT High Court.
The Court granted all the reliefs sought by the Plaintiff.
The President of the NBA Mr AB Mahmoud SAN had earlier appointed Mr Alhaji Bukar as the NBA Publicity Secretary.
