Nigeria Bar Association withdraws Governor El-Rufai’s invitation to its 60th Annual General Conference after public outcry! Details👇

The Nigeria Bar Association has formally withdrawn the invitation of Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai to its 60th Annual General Conference.

Mallam Nasir El-Rufai was scheduled to address lawyers at the conference but his invitation has been officially withdrawn after the professional body received gross condemnation from the public over his invitation.

Many believed that the seemingly controversial Governor has no moral right to address the assembly owing to his antecedents as well his handling of the Southern Kaduna crisis.

The Nigeria Bar Association, via its twitter, confirmed the withdrawal of El Rufai’s invitation.

The tweet reads;

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to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and a decision communicated to the Governor.” 

As expected, this latest development has generated a handful of reactions 👇
