This was made known in a statement signed by Nuhu Ibrahim, Esq and Abdulbasit Suleiman, Esq, and made available to newsmen.

They informed the AGF of their plans in an August 28 letter signed by Ibrahim as Convener 1 and Suleiman as Convener 2.

The rumblings for a breakaway association began with the dis-invitation of Kaduna Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, as a guest speaker during the recently concluded NBA annual congress.
