The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has withdrawn its invitation to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, after protests from some lawyers.

 

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to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai, by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and decision communicated to the Governor.”

 

A petition to stop the governor from attending the Annual General Conference was started by a lawyer, Usani Odum, as of 4 pm on Thursday and it has garnered over 3,150 signatures on Change.Org.
