NBA President Paul Usoro Says He Won't Resign Despite EFCC’s Charges Against Him

The President of the Nigerian Bar Association and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Paul Usoro, has said he will not resign based on the N1.4bn fraud charges preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission....







The NBA president maintained his innocence concerning the charges on Saturday insisting that the funds he received from Udom and the Akwa Ibom State Government were professional fees.



He said, “I will be in court on Monday, I have already made that quite clear. Let me emphasise this: I haven’t been served. I expect that I will be served. But I am completely innocent. I presented the facts, as I know them, in the address that was adopted by the NEC. As I have said, you can read the address and you can pick up the facts from there.”


Asked if he would resign after his arraignment, he said, “I will not. I consider that it is the national executive committee of the NBA that has the power to decide whether I should remain or not. This matter was presented to the committee. We had a very good and successful meeting and nobody raised the issue in regard to whether I should leave or not.”

To back his position, he cited the instance of the Senate President Bukola Saraki, who remained in office until he was absolved of the assets declaration charges by the Supreme Court.

“What would have happened if the Senate President had resigned?” Usoro, who was one of the lead lawyers in Saraki’s legal team, queried.

He said the case against him was possibly “hyped” barely 48 hours to the NBA’s NEC meeting to instigate the body to remove him from office.
