The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has explained why it withdrew the invitation extended to the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

Recall that El-Rufai had been invited as one of the speakers in the association’s forthcoming Annual General Conference.

Explaining the decision which was preceded by a protest and an online petition led by a lawyer, Usani Odum, the NBA said allegations had been raised against the governor and his son.

A letter titled ‘Request to Withdraw the Offer of Platform at the 2020 Annual General Conference of the NBA to Mallam Nasir el-Rufai’ and signed by Silas Onu and Auta Nyada, listed 10 allegations against El-Rufai and his son Bello.

The allegations bordered on his alleged poor human rights record and inability to stop the killings in the state he governs, particularly in southern Kaduna.

The tweet which confirmed the withdrawal of the invitation to Governor El-Rufai read:

“The National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association at its ongoing meeting resolves that the invitation to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and decision communicated to the Governor.”
