A source from the NBA National Secretariat has debunked a report made by TheNigerialawyer (TNL) barely some minutes ago that, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee of the Bar, Prof. Auwalu Yadudu has resigned.
According to the Source, as at the time the publication was made, the erudite professor of law was in a meeting with some stakeholders and the Presidential candidates for the forthcoming National Election. By implication therefore, it doesn’t make any logical sense that the professor who had tendered a letter of resignation will be chairing a meeting with persons connected to the cause he is dissociating himself from.
On receipt of the contradiction, TheNigerialawyer (TNL) made an investigation into the matter to ascertain the truism in the claims. On a double check, it was confirmed that the letter was forged by an unknown person, howbeit, sent by the NBA email through which TNL receives mails from the National body. TNL further put a call through to Mr. Yadudu who also confirmed the forgery in the said letter. According to him, he has not resigned and remains the Chairman of the National Electoral Body.
TheNigerialawyer (TNL) therefore retract the previous publication which is already trending, whilst rendering its unreserved apology to the general public for the news birthed with falsity, albeit, published in good faith.
TheNigerialawyer ( TNL) recalls that it had earlier published a report to the effect that chairman of the Electoral Committe of the Nigerian Bar Association, Prof. Auwalu Yadudu tendered a letter of resignation to the Chairman of the Bar, A.B. Mahmoud SAN.
The letter which was dated the 5th day of August, 2018 and believed to be issued under his very hand, showed that be had taken the step to protect his reputation and integrity.
