The Jigawa State Chapter of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has threatened not to participate in the Virtual Annual General Conference of the association following the withdrawal of invitation earlier sent to Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El- Rufai.
Garba Abubakar, Chairman of NBA Jigawa, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
Describing the allegations levelled against Governor El-Rufai as frivolous, Abubakar accused the NBA of not giving him the opportunity to defend himself.
“A section of the country cannot therefore take us for a ride as we all have a fair understanding of the law,” he said.
“On the strength of this therefore, we call on the national body under President Paul Usoro (SAN) to reverse the decision with immediate effect else the Nigerian Bar Association Dutse branch will boycott the Virtual Annual General Conference taking place in a few days to come.”
More details soon.
