UNCOVERED: ECNBA Denies Report Offering Assistance to Lawyers with Irregularities on Provisional List, Says Beware of Unknown Persons Requesting for Your Contact Details

The Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) on Saturday, immediately after the release of the 2020 Election ‘Provisional Voters’ List, urged all lawyers to be on the alert against any unknown persons acting in the name of the committee to offer assistance to lawyers and demanding contact details of eligible voters.

The ECNBA in a short notice directs all complaints and queries regarding the election process to be forwarded to the respective branch Chairmen, or their Secretaries as the case may be.

ECNBA Secretary, Mrs. Cordelia Eke in her message said: “My attention has been drawn to a post by one etsujenniffer@gmail asking people to send their corrections to her to follow up with the ECNBA.

“People should be informed that the ECNBA deals only with Branch Chairmen and Secretaries where need be on issues of corrections on the Voters Register. Colleagues should therefore beware of unknown persons requesting for their contact details.”

Read the notice being circulated on social media below:

Good evening all,

Can everyone please go through the list to confirm that (a) his or her name is on it; and (b) the phone number, email address and other details indicated against your name are correct? 

If (a) your name is not on the list even though you paid your practising fees and branch dues before 31 March 2020; or (b) your name is on the list but your other details have been omitted or incorrectly indicated, please, make a note of the error or the omission and send and email to your Branch Chairman copying etsujennifer@gmail.com

If you do not have the email address of your Branch Chairman, send the email directly to etsujennifer@gmail.com,  and she will assist in following up and resolving the error or omission. 

The email should include your full name (as appears on your call certificate); the complaint (missing name or incorrect details); and evidence of payment of practising fees and branch dues (in the case of missing names).

Reacting to the fraudulent information above, the ECNBA Secretary, Mrs. Cordelia Eke, Esq., has immediately disclaimed this message in circulation.

She disconnected ECNBA from the information, and reaffirmed that the Electoral Committee will only work with the Branch Chairmen and their Secretaries.
