Prof. Ernest Ojukwu SAN one of the Presidential Aspirants in the upcoming Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) National Election has written to the Chairman of the NBA Electoral Committee requesting for a debate for the presidential aspirants.
He stated that the request is to enable the aspirants the opportunity to present their manifestos to the electorates noting that such debate will offer an opportunity for members to make informed decision during the election.
“Since the opening of campaigns by ENBA, candidates have had little time and space to present their manifestos in the real sense.”
“A debate by the candidates will offer opportunity for the vast majority of NBA members to make an informed decision as to who should lead the Bar from August 2018.”
“A debate will be the true test for agenda setting. A debate is a process in open and transparent governance.”
“Please I urge the Committee to approve and or arrange a debate for the candidates. I am copying this request to Mr Paul Usoro SAN and Arthur Obi Okafor SAN.”
