Mid-West Bar Forum: We Have No Deal with the West on NBA 2020 Elections – Okpoko, SAN
Former President of the NBA Chief T.J. Onomigbo-Okpoko, SAN in his address to members of the Mid-West Bar Forum at the meeting of the Forum held in Benin-City today, categorically debunked reports credited to Chief Niyi Akintola, SAN to the effect that the Mid-West Bar Forum had entered into an agreement with the Egbe Amofin to concede the Presidency of the NBA in 2020 to the Egbe.
Chief Okpoko stated that there was no iota of truth in that statement and that he was utterly disappointed that any member of the Bar would resort to peddling falsehood simply to achieve selfish political ends.
He reaffirmed that the Presidency of the NBA come 2020 is, by virtue of the Association’s Constitution, zoned to members of the Association who are from the Western part of Nigeria, which includes Edo and Delta States, and that all members of the NBA who are from that zone and who meet the stipulated criteria are eligible to run for the office.
