NBA Elections 2020: ECNBA Says Voters’ Enrollment Number is the Unique Identifier to Vote, Branches or Sex Assigned Bear No Significance on Eligibility or Election Results
The Electoral Committe of the Nigeria Bar Association had put up a statement on the questions and complaints that followed the release of the final voters register for the NBA elections. The statement reads:
On this 29/7/2020, the ECNBA circulated the list of accredited voters for the NBA National Officers election 2020 slated to commence at 11:00PM of Wednesday, 29/7/2020.
Members are assured that the unique identifier of each voter to be able to vote remains the enrollment number which is peculiar to each voter.
The ECNBA received complaints of members being placed in branches other than their own. This situation is regretted, but arose because members in the course of verification did not fully update information on their current branches and or sex and consequently were assigned the default positions (place holder) on the verification platform.
Members are advised to proceed to vote and disregard any such branches and or sex assigned to them as these do not bear on eligibility, convenience or result of the elections.
Members may wish to update their details on the membership portal of the NBA after the elections. In respect of omitted names, please see the ECNBA previous statements, more particularly ECNBA Statement No.018
Remember ballot opens at 11.00pm today, happy voting.
