The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, on Thursday withdrawn its invitation to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
The NBA made this known in a tweet on Thursday via its Twitter handle @NigBarAssoc.
The tweet 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to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai, by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and decision communicated to the Governor.”
Some lawyers in a petition had faulted the NBA for inviting el-Rufai to speak at the 2020 Annual General Conference of the NBA.
They cited his alleged poor human rights record and his inability to stop the killings, particularly in southern Kaduna.
