Over the years the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) which is the leading Association of Professionals in the Country, has been in the forefront of agitating for credible elections in Nigeria.
The duty of the NBA Election Observer Group is to observe Nigeria elections and give report of their observations on the process and conduct of the Elections.
In view of the above, the Nigerian Bar Association in conjunction with INEC has since 2011 till date, engaged lawyers that would act as observers representing the NBA in Elections.
The Elections observation exercise provides the opportunity for lawyers to display the very fabric on which the law profession is built upon, integrity, excellence, courage and professionalism in the way and manner they observe the election.
In line with the dictates of the NBA to provide an unbiased reportage and stance on the conduct of elections being carried out, this administration under the leadership of Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud SAN, has constituted an Edo State Governorship Election Observation Group chaired by Albert Akpomudjie SAN, to observe the Edo State Gubernatorial Election billed to hold on Saturday 10th September, 2016.
Other Members of the Group are:
1. Omonuwa Omoruyi Augustine, SAN Alternate Chairman
2. Mark Enameh Member
3. Festus Okoye Member
4. Dr Violet Aigbokaevbo Member
5. Professor Nathaniel Inegbedion Member
6. Awele Ideal Member
