Kaduna State Chapter of the Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria, has threatened not to participate in the Virtual Annual General Conference of the NBA following the withdrawal of the invitation to Kaduna governor, Nasir el-Rufai, as guest speaker by leaders of the association.

Recall that, governor el-Rufai had been scheduled to participate in a panel discussion at the virtual NBA conference which supposed to hold from August 26 -August 29, but his inclusion sparked controversy amongst lawyers, which led to the withdrawal of his invitation as the gust speaker.

The group, at a press briefing on Saturday in Kaduna, insisted that the NBA did not give the governor a fair hearing.

Abbas Masanawa, Chairman of the said its members will not be attending the conference.

He said, “The said decision of the NBA NEC is deemed by MULAN Kaduna Branch as being parochial, sentimental, disuniting and tainted with favouritism and ethno-religious considerations.

“The President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Paul Usoro (SAN), said ‘NEC’s decision had no ethnic or religious colouration or connotation howsoever and whatsoever.’

“MULAN Kaduna Branch asks Mr President if the topic: Who is a Nigerian? has anything to do with Southern Kaduna. An honest answer in this direction would reveal the clandestine motive of the NBA.”

The noted that governor el-Rufai was not given the opportunity to defend himself.
