The appointment follows the expiration of the tenure of the 3-member Caretaker Committee set up by the Paul Usoro, SAN-administration and accords with the promise made by the NBA President at the Stakeholders Meeting which he held with the outgone Caretaker Committee and other members of the Branch on 28 September 2020.

The NBA President expresses his profound gratitude to the outgone Caretaker Committee for managing the affairs of the Branch, from 30 June 2020 – 30 September 2020, to the best of their ability and appreciates their efforts despite the various difficulties they encountered which ultimately made the holding of Branch elections impracticable.
The tenure of the current Caretaker Committee shall be three months, commencing on 1 October 2020 and ending 31 December 2020, within which time the Committee will be expected to conduct election into the various Branch offices.
The NBA President calls on all members of the Association and especially members of NBA Ikeja Branch to cooperate with the Caretaker Committee to ensure the smooth execution of this critical assignment and an amicable resolution of all outstanding issues.
