Distinguished Colleagues, 

The Electoral Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (ECNBA) has issued ECNBA Notice No. 5 reiterating the ban on campaign by candidates and supporters in the forthcoming elections of National Officers and NBA Representatives to the General Council of the Bar.

The Notice states that “…persons who have been issuing online posts, and messages with subtle campaign themes and innuendos are hereby warned to desist immediately.”

According to the ECNBA, until the Electoral Committee declares “…campaigns open and set out the limited scope of such a campaign as provided in our Constitution, and relevant guidelines, no prospective candidate nor his/her supporters shall post, issue, print, publish, or display any campaign material, nor embark upon a campaign visit under any guise. Where evidence of such infraction is provided to the ECNBA, such a candidate shall be disqualified forthwith and shall not participate in the elections.”

Thank you, and do have a great day.

Akorede Habeeb Lawal 

National Publicity Secretary
