By Usman Shuaibu

A chairmanship candidate for the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Gwagwalada Area Council branch, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has expressed worry over the postponement of a scheduled election for the leadership of the association.

It was gathered that the election have been suffered three postponements in a row, over disagreement as to who should conduct the said election.

Speaking with our correspondent during a chat, in Gwagwalada, the secretary of the branch,  Dawud  Suleiman, described the situation as a worrisome to him and some concerned members of the association.

He alleged that what was causing the postponement of the election was that some aggrieved members wanted the election to be conducted by the national body of NBA, while others wanted the Gwagwalada NBA branch to conduct the election.

Suleiman, who is contesting for the position of the chairmanship of the association in Gwagwalada, however, said that he understands that another date would be fixed for the election.

Consequently,  A.A. Mohammed who is currently the 1st vice chairman of the association was appointed as the acting chairman alongside the five officials to pilot the affairs of the branch pending when the election will be conducted.
