Though this is a season of defection galore in the bigger Nigerian political landscape, my own resolve and personal conviction to finally port to Paul Usoro SAN and vote for him as my most preferred candidate for the imminent NBA election is neither a matter of defection nor decamping.
The NBA has no political party but the existence of some self-serving cabals, cliques, clannish & tribal bigots, divisive and unnecessary religious bigots associations including compartmentalized denomination conclaves, the now defunct and moribund regional and geo-political zoning fora, all of which to me serve no useful purpose to the Bar and their adherent members but selfishly contrived to deceive unsuspecting members of the Bar who may have fallen victims of their warped and compromised promotion of their candidates through a cunningly predetermined skewed arrangement tagged “Adoption” as if we are all robots who must swallow hook , line and sinker their whatever rotten products without questions.
This is just a preamble on the reasons why I have finally ported from Mazi Afam Osigwe to Arthur Obi Okafor SAN, to Ernest Ojukwu SAN and finally to the best of the packs whose professional exploits, sagacity, exposure and comportments towers and shine more gloriously than the other contestants – Paul Usoro SAN is primus inter pares as far as the 2018 NBA Presidential election is concerned.
I have been PUrified, I therefore respectfully urge all of us to vote him as the next President of the Bar so that we can take our Bar to the next level.
