“You are not unaware of the several offensive publications (to put it mildly) that certain identified leaders of the NBA have orchestrated against me and my person in the past one year, all of which have been elaborately circulated in the prints, electronicsand social media, (including paid advertorials in leading national dailies), and the deliberations on some of the publications at our last meeting of 24thJanuary, 2023. I take the attacks with equanimity. It is part of the price I have to pay for who I am, through the grace of God. It is also expected that any leader of my status will go
through unjust travails at one point or the other, but the important thing is for a leader not to quake, cave in or succumb to any unwholesome bait. I was always conscious of the fact that I occupy a verydistinguished and eminent position in succession to worthy, noble, revered and venerated predecessors–in–office. Hence, my deliberate decision not to join issues, but let me boast in theLord that I have my integrity before me, and it remains intact. Like the Psalmist of old, I can always say that: “But as for me, I will
walk in mine integrity:”
