Revelations: Actual causes I resigned my membership of NBA Ikeja Caretaker Committee – Ex-VP, Ubani
A former member of the NBA Ikeja Department Caretaker Committee, Monday Ubani Esq has given extra the explanation why he resigned his membership of the Committee.
Under is his full response
FURTHER AND BETTER PARTICULARS FOR MY RESIGNATION – M. O. UBANI.
I’ve seen and skim some reactions to my resignation from the Caretaker Committee of NBA Ikeja and a few of them stemmed from my incapability to offer additional and higher particulars to the explanations for my resignation.
Some have requested “why resign” when the Committee appeared to have finished the proper factor by disqualifying the unqualified candidate.
The reality of the matter is that I didn’t present ample causes for resigning from the Committee to not create pointless distractions however I believe few information could also be needed all the identical.
The letter to the disqualified candidate was signed by the three man committee comprising the Chairman, Mr Bisi Ade-Ademuwagun, Mr Omole Adebamigbe, Secretary and my humble self Mr M.O.Ubani as Member.
Certainly one of us, Mr Omole got here again the next day and retrieved the signed letter from the clerk that was imagined to go and serve the letter on the disqualified candidate and requested the Bar Secretary to re-type the letter through which the Chairman Mr Bisi Ade-Ademuwagun will signal as a sole signatory on behalf of the Committee.
I felt completely betrayed and rattled as a member of the committee by this sort of behaviour. If not that I made a photocopy of the signed letter, Mr Omole may even deny ever signing the stated letter. His purpose I learnt from the Chairman is that he doesn’t imagine that Article 6(3) of the Uniform Bye Regulation ought to have a retrospective impact.
The Chairman took nearly two hours consulting individuals that I have no idea earlier than signing by which era, the Candidate was reported to not be round and his workplace closed to obtain the letter. I knew what recreation was up their sleeves.
I instructed the Secretary to ship the scanned copy of the letter to the candidate’s electronic mail which was promptly complied with and proof of supply by our official electronic mail despatched to me for the data.
Thereafter I requested that we publish the names of the certified candidates and the Tips for the election as time was not on our facet since our tenure expires on the finish of this September.
The Chairman pleaded with me to carry on until the next day to ensure that us to have one other assembly, the aim of which was not clear to me.
The final time we held our assembly, we collectively agreed to push out the names of the cleared candidates and electoral tips to information the method as time was of essence. The lack to push out the names of the cleared candidates and the rules was not clear to me and I perceived that the assembly referred to as for the next day with out pushing out the names of the cleared candidates and Tips was laden with ill-motive.
I made it clear to the chairman that if the names and tips didn’t exit on the seventeenth of September since now we have twenty ninth of September to conduct the election, I’ll excuse myself from the Committtee as I don’t function underneath an environment of inconsistency.
Later within the night I obtained it from a dependable authority that the disqualified candidate has concluded plans to go to court docket the next day. Heard that motion was filed at present the 18th of September 2020 confirming my suspicion.
At that time it turned apparent to me why the Chairman had requested that the names and tips be stopped from being printed. The reason being to put the committee naked for judicial ambush. I learnt that they’ve concluded plans to tug the Committee and the Nationwide physique to court docket.
For the sake of data, I’m not afraid of being dragged to court docket however what I discovered distasteful is the concept of not permitting the proper factor to be finished and inspiring fallacious factor to be finished by the Committee. The court docket is there for everybody and success in a case is a matter of proof.
a. Asking that no clarifications be sought from the nationwide when the committee is conscious that Article 6(3) of the Uniform Bye-Regulation was a giant challenge through the time of the disbanded Electoral Committee headed by the discovered Tunde Adejuyigbe SAN.
b. Insisting that the Nationwide’s clarifications of their letters can not type the idea of our resolution for the candidacy of the unqualified candidate.
c. When the choice was taken to do the proper factor even belatedly, the Chairman’s lack of firmness in publishing the cleared candidates and releasing the electoral tips was a burden too heavy for me to endure.
d. The Chairman realizing that the folks need to go to court docket and nonetheless urge me to hold on on the difficulty of publishing the names of cleared candidates and tips was act of betrayal to me and I felt uncomfortable working in such an environment.
e. Deciphering that the selections of the Electoral Committee is closing when it’s apparent that the finality of the choice of the Electoral Committee can solely be legally acceptable when the Electoral Committee’s resolution complies with extant legislation in its features. If I’ll ask, can any sane electoral Committee clear a 2 yr put up name candidate to run for the workplace of chairman in any department on the bottom that its resolution enjoys finality underneath the Uniform Bye-Regulation? What are we actually saying gents?
With these acts of schenaniganism coupled with the truth that these guys are determined to rub mud on anybody each first rate and indecent, I suggested myself to take a stroll.
The 2 months service as a Caretaker committee member was taking a toll already on me and my apply despite the fact that I used to be not complaining, however I don’t need to add defamatory and reputational injury as an additional baggage.
We’re legal professionals and our methods should be seen to be first rate all the time.
So far as the retrospective interpretation of Article 6(3) of the Uniform Bye legislation has not been reversed in any subsequent NEC, AGM or by any court docket in Nigeria anyone preferring his or her personal interpretation opposite to NEC decision in Jos in 2016 is SIMPLY A TROUBLE MAKER AND SHOULD BE SO MARKED BY DECENT MEMBERS OF THE PROFESSION. A REBEL MUST HAVE A CAUSE, THERE IS NO CAUSE IN THIS FIGHT. QUOTE ME.
