New NBA president forms committees to cut election costs, investigate 2022 conference violence

Yakubu Maikyau, the next president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), was sworn in as Olumide Akpata’s replacement. He immediately established two committees.

At the conclusion of the 62nd Annual General Conference of the association on Friday, Mr. Maikyau took the oath of office as the 31st President of the NBA.

On August 23, when some attendees went on a rampage, vandalizing and stealing things because they couldn’t get their hands on conference materials, the program was marred by violence.

Maikyau has “put in motion some of the administration’s immediate priorities, including announcing the formation of an Electoral Reform Committee to be chaired by Mr. E. Y. Kura SAN,” according to a statement by the association’s national press secretary Akorede Lawal. The reduction or minimization of the expenses borne by candidates during NBA national elections is a fundamental responsibility of this committee.

“Mr. President also announced the formation of an Enquiry Committee to be presided over by Mr. Wale Fapohunda SAN, whose mandate is to investigate the regrettable events that took place on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, while members were waiting to pick up conference materials and some delinquent members went on to destroy property and assault staff of the NBA.”

Mr. Akpata, the NBA’s immediate past president, apologized for the violence and other terrible acts that occurred during the conference in a message that was previously issued to NBA members.

He also mentioned that the NBA had blacklisted Antoche Limited, the business hired to provide conference materials, and its owners.
