Scores of judicial reports have described their first encounter with the chairperson-designate of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Cllr. A. Ndubusi Nwabudike, as unfavorable of a public official.
The journalist who had engaged Cllr. Nwabudike curious to get the proper pronunciation of his names were snubbed by the answer provided by the lawyer which most of them believe was a cheek or brush-off.
Yesterday, following the guilty verdict against the former Defense Minister Brownie Samukai and the two other former Ministry of Defense staff, journalists thought they could now have a conversation with Cllr. Nwabudike apparently about his new appointment.
Cllr. Nwabudike who seemed to want to be bothered by reporters responded harshly stating, “I will send your to college when your come back your will learn how to spell my name.”
Some journalists who had not interacted with him before expressed surprise while others encouraged their colleagues stating that Cllr. Nwabudike has poor human relations and uses cash to get whatever he wants.
Cllr. Nwabudike, whose posture portrayed him as a hero as if he was expecting to say this one thing to any journalists who had confronted him about his nationality since his appointment to the NEC, did not say a word but walk into the court room.
