NBA-YLF Disclaims Affiliation with an Unauthorised “Candidate/Voter Interactive Session”

NBA-YLF Disclaims Affiliation with an Unauthorised "Candidate/Voter Interactive Session"

The Governing Council of the Nigerian Bar Association’s Young Lawyers’ Forum (NBA-YLF) has formally distanced itself from an event titled “2nd Edition of Candidate/Voter Interactive Session,” organized by unrecognized groups known as “Young Lawyers Voters Congress” and “NBA Voters Meet.

In an official statement recently released by the Governing Council through its Publicity Secretary, Mina Hope Obeten, it was noted: “The attention of the Governing Council of the Nigerian Bar Association’s Young Lawyers’ Forum (NBA-YLF) has been drawn to a publication circulating on social media, especially WhatsApp, by some groups of individuals under the auspices of ‘Young Lawyers Voters Congress’ and ‘NBA Voters Meet’.

The publication calls for participating in a so-called interactive session titled “2nd Edition of Candidate/Voter Interactive Sessions” via WhatsApp from June 21–30, 2024. Unfortunately, the organisers unscrupulously used the NBA-YLF’s official logo on the face of the said publication, albeit without the consent of the Council’s leadership.

The statement further clarifies: “On this note, the NBA-YLF Governing Council unequivocally distances itself from the so-called interactive session and denies any affiliation with the organisers.”

The Governing Council also vowed to investigate unknown persons’ unauthorised use of its logo. It advised young lawyers to stay vigilant and verify links and platforms shared with them, especially during the NBA election. Anyone who joins the said WhatsApp group or any similar group does so at their own risk.

Signed:

Abdulrauf Tijjani Aboki
National Chairman, NBA-YLF
