I shall carefully evaluate all contestants before throwing my weight behind him/her
I shall find out the kind of practice he/she runs. The structure, success and failure of his practice would suggest how he would conduct the affairs of the bar.
I shall find out what welfare package the contestant has for the juniors in his/her office. Whatever he does to his juniors in his office would be a perfect litmus test for what I shall expect from him if elected.
I wound never take seriously whatever promise the contestant makes. Talk is cheap. The world now favours “doers” not “talkers”. I would find out how much service he has rendered in the past in the legal profession.
I shall not receive money or any money from the contestant as a motivation/favour.
I am a professional. I would not be rascally in my engagement of issues on the election. I would address issues and engage contestants intellectually.
I shall ensure I exercise my franchise in the best interest of the bar
