AbdulGaneey Bello ACIArb (UK) emerges new Chairman of the Ilorin branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) to succeed its incumbent Chairman, Mr. Muhammed Ayoola Idowu Akande.
Bello emerged the winner of the NBA election conducted through electronic voting on Friday, June 26th, 2020.
AbdulGaneey Bello won the NBA election with a total of 98 votes while his opponent, Abiodun Ebeneza Dada pulled a total of 74 votes.
Before his election as NBA chairman yesterday, he was the Finacial Secretary 2003/2005, Assistant Secretary 2005/2007, Secretary 2007/2009
Bello was elected as the chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Ilorin Branch to pilot the affairs of the association for the next two years.
Coincidentally, Bello was one of the two aspirants who stepped down for Alhaji Manzuma Issa to emerge as the branch’s NBA Chairman in 2016.
AbdulGaneey Bello ACIArb (UK) and Mai Akande Esq, the Doyen of Ilorin Bar were persuaded by Dr. Aliyu Salman SAN (life Bencher) to give up their aspirations at that time and offered prayers that they will all achieve their goals if they respect his advice to withdraw from the race. They obliged, and their sacrifices paid off.
Manzuma Issa Esq, was the 21st Chairman of the Ilorin branch of NBA, Mai Akande Esq became the 22nd Chairman and now AbdulGaneey Bello ACIArb (UK) is the 23rd Chairman-elect.
As AbdulGaneey Bello emerges the new chairman of Ilorin NBA, his sacrifices have been rewarded.
