NBA withdraws invitation to Governor El-Rufai as speaker in forthcoming conference

The Nigerian Bar Association has withdrawn its invitation to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai as one of the speakers in its forthcoming conference. 

 

The announcement was made via the association's Twitter handle, days after some lawyers protested against the inclusion of the Kaduna state Governor in NBA's speakers' list. 

 

Recall that a lawyer, Usani Odum spearheaded the online petition to stop the governor from attending the Annual General Conference and it has garnered over 3,000 signatures.



In a seperate 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, 10 allegations against el-Rufai and his son Bello were listed. 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 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to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and decision communicated to the Governor.”

Good.. An Extremist is not suppose to be in such gathering.. Mallam na Mallam


The removal of El-Rufai's name should not be seen as 'hatred' or 'sentimental' call; rather, a wake up signal to all those in authority never to undermine majority opinion on critical national issues, as we all are stakeholders in the Nigerian State and her leadership. We must at every point, demand for societal virtues in leadership, irrespective of who is involved.. long live the NBA

I love this, we will get there by force by fire in making Nigeria a saner clime where people's utterances/actions must be backed with consequences. All this attitude of "we are the one in power", "Na we dey run the show", Nothing go happen" must stop. All government officials must be accountable for their actions, most of the impunity they enjoy must be reviewed.

Exactly. This is what I expect the lawyers in this country to be doing. Ginger the masses to fight for their right. You people should begin to speak up actively and help fellow Nigerians out of this mess we are in. It is you people that know the nuances of the law and know how to navigate it to get what you want. Do it wisely. I see no reason why we would have the calibre of lawyers we have in this country, and police will just be arresting,harrasing and molesting people anyhow with no repacaution. Somebody will be arrested for no reason and they'd refuse the person their right to make a phone call because they want to extort the person. All these human right cases are things that should not be tolerated.

NBA withdraws invitation to El-Rufai as speaker in forthcoming conference because they want nothing to do with the commander of BOKO HARAM terrorists. Genocidal manic El-Rufai is a terrorist and a disgusting and reprehensible murder. Thunder fire El-Rufai. He will be jailed for the killings he and his gang committed.

For NBA to have played to the gallery will have itself to blame in near future. Whatever reason you adduced to withdraw his invitations is a mere conjecture as no court has ever found him culpable nor his son. NBA should know that they have played into wrong hands and troubled water. Mark my word. He will take a pound of flesh with spilled of .......


Anonymous about 1 hour ago

This kind of narrative amazes me, he will take his pound of flesh that what? So u need a court to confirm that he made the body bag statement or that he said he paid Malians to stop attacking KD or what? Or that he caused people to be held in custody and they were later freed by the court? I dont seem to see your point.

Well supported, let he learn to govern his state first because Kaduna is on fire right now. Please, Mr. Governor, take care of your state. Bravo to NBA!


Anonymous about 1 hour ago

Governing his state is an extreme measure. Let him learn to govern his family first. I guess the el-rufai family are the most terrible I have come across all my life. From father to mother to children . Each is a bag of stinking shit! Once they open their mouths, they ooze nothing else but stench! Disgusting midgets!

The NBA should also ensure that the Honourable minister of Justice and attorney general of the federation @Malamigate and @LaiMohammed are not allowed to speak due to their shoddy performance in the present government especially with regard to the controversial hate speech fine of ₦5 million
