UPDATE: After 14107 have been cast, Olumide Akpata maintains his comfortable lead. Meanwhile, Awomolo’s Letter Against “Junior Lawyers” Leading The Bar also contributed to Olumide Akpata’s victory. Not the first e-elections? But is it possible that the older wigs haven’t gotten a hang of the new system?
Olumide Akpata victory is hinged on three things.
- Departure from the old order of making NBA Presidency an exclusive rights of SAN
- He was able to appeal to the conscience of Young Lawyers.
- He was able to engage the right people on social media.
