The Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) has issued details on how it will conduct the 2022 NBA Elections.

In a link shared by the ECNBA, it also stated that “Election result will be published on or before 24 hours post election.”

The Electoral Committee has also provided details of its Help Desk for the election, showing that eligible voters may email the committee at support@evm.ng or call its helpline on 070-8067-2013.

The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) also encourage voters to “add ecnba@evm.ng to your contact list to prevent the email from being identified as spam.”

The committee warned that “If you have not received the message by election day, either your phone number is not registered on your profile or we could not deliver the message to you due to DND that may be turned on.” It encouraged voters to deactivate their Do Not Disturb (DND) functionality in order to facilitate receipt of their voting credentials.

In an earlier Information Release, the ECNBA had stated that “Qualified Voters that experience issues receiving OTP through their email should check their SPAM / Junk Folders and on their phones may have to temporarily disable Do not Disturb (DND) following these steps:

a. 9mobile (Etisalat) numbers, Text START to 2442.
b. MTN numbers, Text ALLOW to 2442.
c. Glo numbers, Text CANCEL to 2442.
d. Airtel numbers, Text ALLOW to 2442

Though the electoral umpire urged eligible voters to “Please visit www.ecnba.ng to confirm your eligibility to vote,” the ECNBA is yet to publish the final list of verified voters.

• Can be used to verify your vote:
o Has been tallied and included in the results
o Has not been tampered with from the time you voted to when the vote results are shared

A list of confirmation codes will be included with the vote’s results. You can verify your vote by matching your confirmation code to the list.

HOW DOES THE ELECTION PORTAL PREVENT OTHERS FROM VIEWING MY VOTING CHOICES?
The Election platform powered by ElectionBuddy automatically uses SSL security for all communications, with 256-bit encryption – the same used by major banks. This means the connection between you and ElectionBuddy’s server is completely secure. When you open the ballot, you can make your choices, and submit your ballot, without anybody being able to see your choices.
