New NBA PRESIDENT BARRISTER OLUMIDE AKPATA

This year’s elections will remain unique in the history of the Nigerian Bar Association as this is the first time in over three decades that the president of the NBA will be emerging from the outer bar, and not among the rank of senior advocates.

Akpata won the 2020 elections with 1,002 votes which is about 54.8 per cent of the vote cast.

The first runner-up, Babatunde Ajibade, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) polled 808 votes while the second runner-up, Julius Adesina scored 679 votes.

Details of the NBA Executives Inauguration will be announced later.
