Drama as ex Lagos NBA chairman, Ikwuazom, arbitrarily Disqualify Ihiala NBA Football Team and Awards 3 points to his Branch
There was a mild drama yesterday, 25th August, 2019, at Methodist School, Victoria Island, where the NBA Football Tournament is scheduled to take place.
The second match was to be played between Ihiala Branch v. Lagos Branch but Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom, who is overseeing the NBA Football Committee, single handedly disqualified the Ihiala Bar (Eagle Bar) team on the ground that there was no sufficient evidence of payment of branch dues for its players, even as he (Chukwuka Ikwuazom Esq.) never fully screened all the players of the Ihiala Bar.
This was despite the fact that the Chairman of Ihiala Branch- Marcel Obijiagwam Esq., its Secretary and Financial Secretary authored a document stating that all the persons listed therein had paid their Branch dues. The said officials were also present at the venue of the tournament and they reaffirmed their position.
In spite of these, Chukwuka Ikwuazom Esq., who coincidentally is the immediate past chairman of Lagos Branch, went ahead to arbitrarily disqualify Ihiala Branch and awarded all football points to his Branch- Lagos Branch, as victor.
Most commentators and lawyers present at the venue of the tournament were extremely disappointed with Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom apparent show of bias and immaturity.
The players of the Ihiala Branch peacefully protested by staying on the pitch and calling on the leadership of the Bar to intervene and remove the patently biased Chukwuka Ikwuazom Esq. from the leadership capacity he occupies on the NBA Football Committee.
