The tweet read:

“The National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association at its ongoing meeting resolves that the invitation to the Kaduna State Governor, H.E. Nasir El-Rufai, by the 2020 Annual General Conference Planning committee be withdrawn and decision communicated to the Governor.”

The withdrawal of the invitation for the Kaduna Governor came after some lawyers petitioned the association alleging that inviting El-rufai stood against the ethos of the association.
