KanyiDaily recalls that prior to El-Rufai’s withdrawal, thousands of Nigerians had signed a petition seeking to stop the Kaduna Governor from attending the Conference which is set to begin on 26 – August 29, 2020.
Some lawyers have also called on the leadership of the bar to remove El-Rufai from the list of speakers, else they will not be attending the NBA conference.
The call to remove Governor el-Rufai from the list of speakers upcoming NBA conference is due to the manner the governor had been handling the crisis in southern Kaduna.
