EBF Candidate Adoption: NBA Port Harcourt Rejects Arthur Obi’s Endorsement


The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA)  Port Harcourt Branch has distanced itself from the endorsement of Chief Arthur Obi-Okafor as the EBF’s consensus candidate for the NBA Presidential polls which comes up in a few months.

Speaking on the endorsement, the Secretary of the Branch said:

It has come to my attention that the NBA Port Harcourt Branch was recorded as having acceded to the adoption of candidates for NBA Presidency 2018, during the meeting of the Governing Council of the Eastern Bar Forum held in Port Harcourt on the 3rd of February, 2018.

I wish to clarify that at no time did the NBA Port Harcourt Branch or its leadership discuss, agree or authorize any such adoption of candidates on its behalf. It therefore stands to reason that any opinion expressed in support of same by anyone in that regard to the EBF is personal to him and not a decision of the NBA Port Harcourt Branch nor the Branch EXCO.

Thank you.

Secretary of the NBA Port Harcourt Branch
