According to report reaching OYOGist.com, pan-Yoruba lawyers association, Egbe Amofin, has rejected the online polls of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) that produced Olumide Akpata as the President-elect of the Association.
Egbe Amofin had prior to the election adopted Dele Adesina as its presidential candidate for the election.
However, the Chairman and Secretary, Chief Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) and Oluwole Akintayo, Esq respectively, Egbe Amofin said the election was conducted in breach of the constitution of NBA.
The reasons advanced by Egbe Amofin include disenfranchisement of significant number of NBA members, unlawful inflation of number of voters of some Branches, voting by some lawyers in the Diaspora, etc.
Egbe Amofin therefore calls on Body of Benchers to cancel the election and constitute Caretaker Committee to conduct fresh election within 6 months.
