Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN will not be submitting a petition to the NBA National Elections Appeals Committee (NBA-NEAC) over the recent NBA Elections due to what his Campaign Team referred to as concerns on the neutrality of the committee and the refusal of the ECNBA to allow an election audit.
The Campaign group disclosed this in a letter addressed to the NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata.
The letter titled “RESERVATIONS ABOUT THE NBA NATIONAL ELECTIONS APPEALS COMMITTEE (NBA-NEAC),” Team J-K Gadzama SAN stated that the “non-neutrality” of members of the Appeals Committee “poses elements of bias by virtue of their active participation in the campaign activities of Y. C. Maikyau, SAN in the recently concluded National Elections which held on Saturday, 16th July, 2022. They further stated that
“The refusal of the ECNBA to allow an election audit which would examine the Election/Result Logs and the platform for the election as requested by our candidate’s Agent, Andrew Agbo-Madaki in his letter dated Saturday, 16th July, 2022 further renders our cause a herculean task if not an impossible one before the Committee, whose duty is essentially factfinding.
