Governor Nasir Elrufai rejected as a Speaker by Lawyers.

TEC News
Insolidarity to the people of southern Kaduna and respect for the rule of law in Nigeria, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has been rejected by some lawyers as a speaker.
Some of the lawyers who have threatened to boycott the forthcoming virtual conference of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) if the outgoing executive led by Paul Usoro, SAN should insist on making Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State as one of the guest speakers.
Some of them said, it was insensitive of the Usoro led executive to have considered the Kaduna State governor as a speaker at a time some issues around him attract public condemnation.
One tweeted: “I call on other well meaning lawyers to also boycott the conference, except El Eufai is withdrawn from speaking at the event.  The Kaduna State Government does not have a track record of respect for the rule of law and protecting the rights to life and property.”
Another writes: “El Rufai has no business sitting with and speaking to gentlemen and ladies of the Bar. I therefore call on @OlumideAkpata to withdraw Elrufai from speaking at the conference. This in solidarity with the incarcerated and the people of Southern Kaduna.”
One however noted: “I am informed that @OlumideAkpata is yet to be sworn-in and yet to resume as President of the Bar. Paul Usoro, SAN is still President of the Bar and is in charge of this year’s conference. So let’s hold Paul Usoro, SAN responsible for this very insensitive error.”
Kaduna state especially the southern part has been witnessing incessant killing of their people by bandits for sometimes now, an issue which has attracted lots of outcry from many quarters in Nigeria and beyond. Just like the tweet of one of the lawyers, Kaduna killing us one of the reasons for rejecting the Governor as a speaker in the event.
