The president of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Paul Usoro, SAN has suspended the “scheduled election for Kano Branch pending the determination of the appeals that arose out of the suspension of some members of the branch by the branch’s electoral committee (ELCOM).

Mr. Usoro, in a letter dated 9th June, 2020 signed by NBA’s general-secretary, Jonathan Gunu Taidi, and addressed to the chairman of Kano 2020 ELCOM chairman, said because the association’s president has constituted appeal panels “to handle appeals arising from decisions of various election committees by the Branches of the NBA”, the scheduled election into all executive positions of the branch has been suspended until all appeals have been heard and determined.
