NBA Conference: Former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II Lends His Voice Over Disinvitation of El-Rufai

 

Following the visit of the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi to Kaduna State, Sanusi has condemned the disinvitation of Governor Nasir El-Rufai as a speaker in one of the panel sessions at the 2020 conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Speaking during a visit to the Kaduna State governor at his office in the Government House on Sunday, Sanusi criticised the NBA for taking such a decision by relying on mere hearsay or petition from a few lawyers.

He said that the association ought to have given the Governor a fair hearing to defend himself before withdrawing its invitation. He also advised the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association to handle the matter properly so as not to degenerate into ethnic or religious issues. He also prayed for peace to return to the troubled Southern Kaduna and other parts of the country where there were security challenges.
