NBA President A B Mahmoud SAN

An Abuja High Court has adjourned hearing to March 22, 2018 in the suit instituted by former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) presidential aspirant, Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN challenging the outcome of the electronic voting election which produced the current  NBA President,Abubakar Mahmoud, SAN.

The hearing commenced with the cross examination of the plaintiff’s 5th witness, information technology expert,  Andrew Madaki, who had earlier stated on oath that the internet voting mechanism adopted by the NBA for the 2016 NBA election was different from the electronic voting provided for by the NBA constitution.

He also told the court that the internet voting system used for the election was unreliable as one vote cast returned multiple results during the demonstration exercise of the system which he witnessed.

The plaintiff, Kyari Gadzama, during  examination, adopted his witness’ statement on oath and thereafter tendered a total of 19 documents which were admitted and marked as exhibits before the court  .

Parts of the documents tendered were various letters of complaints over the conduct of the election

The defendants’ earlier objections to the admissibility of vital electronically generated documents  tendered by the plaintiff were all overruled by the court

Joe-Kyari  Gadzama is challenging  the outcome of the NBA e-voting presidential election held in 2016 for allegedly being marred with irregularities.
