Mr Austine Alegeh emerged the President elect. This edition highlighted some exclusive pictures and interesting sound bites from the elections and the process.
The manifesto night was one of the major highlights of the election process. It gave the candidates for the elections an opportunity to again sell themselves and their programmes especially to the accredited delegates who were gathered.
Delegates consisted of national officers, past presidents, past general secretaries, senior advocates, benchers; delegates nominated from the 109 branches of the association across the country and then co-opted NEC members; all nominated at the discretion of the President.
