Other results show MO Stanley Chidozie emerging unopposed as the 1st Vice president with 6188 votes as Taidi Jonathan Gunu was elected the General Secretary of the Bar with a total of 3574 votes.
Dada Foluke Olayemi was elected as 2nd Vice President, Igba Theophilus Terhile as 3rd Vice President, Ewenode William Onoriode as 1st Assistant Secretary, People Iniobong Irene as the Assistant Financial Secretary, Obasi  Chinyere Gladys as 2nd Assistant Secretary, Olagbegi-Oloba Victoria Banke as Treasurer, Usman Joshua Enemali as Welfare Secretary, and Eze Nnamdi Innocent as the Bar Legal Adviser.
The election had only 16115 number of voter with 3631 yet to vote. The outcome of the results had led to complaints by some lawyers who believe that that the publication of the results was premature, as many lawyers have been disenfranchised. According to some, members had a hard time generating the passwords for voting; therefore the disenfranchisement was no fault of theirs.
In the midst of this, some candidates such as Mobolaji Ojibara, Ph.D FHNR have accepted the outcome of the election, whilst wishing the bar well. According to him, he wants to appeal to his supporters to consider the overall interest of the Bar by cooperating with the incoming executive.
This, however, is not the reaction of other candidates such as Arthur Obi Okafor SAN who withdrew from the race and rejected the expected outcome of the results even before they were published.  In a press statement released in the early hours of today, the 20th day of August, 2018, the learned silk rejected the results claiming that inexplicable and strange surges of votes in favour of Paul Usoro SAN and the glaring incidences of hijacked votes make it clear the result of the election cannot stand. He therefore proposed a participatory post election audit of International Standard.
Other victorious candidates like Chinyere Obasi Gladyz and Elias Emeka Anosike Esq have expressed their gratitude to their teeming supporters for their support and resilience shown before and at the poll, promising to give in their best to the actualization of the promises made on the campaign-days.
