Monrovia – The Liberia National Bar Association has setup a committee “to review statements” made by the Commissioner-designate of the National Elections Commission, Cllr. A. Ndubisi Nwabudike during his confirmation proceedings at the Liberian Senate.

The investigation is gear toward determining if the Nigerian-born-Liberian illegally achieved his Liberian nationality in 1982.

If it’s proven, Cllr. Nwabudike risks being scrapped off his Bar Association’s membership, a situation that might further prove detrimental for the current Chairman of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission – the country’s main anti-graft body.

Cllr. Bobby Livingston, Secretary General of LNBA, told FrontPageAfrica on Wednesday, 1 April that the investigation will focus on the controversy and anomalies in Cllr. Nwabudike’s responses about his naturalization to the Senate.

The NEC Commissioner-designate has come under increasing public scrutiny since his nomination by President George Weah with some calling for the Liberian leader to rescind his preferment while others urging the Senate to turn him down.
