Muslim Rights Council (MURIC), An Islamic human rights organization has reacted to the removal of the name of El-Rufai from the list of speakers by the NBA. Yesterday, the NBA removed the name of the governor from the list of speakers in its Annual General Conference slated for the 26th to the 29th of August, 2020, oyogist.com reports.
The director of MURIC, professor Ishaq Akintola however blasted the body for the action, calling it “parochial, myopic and jejune”. The professor added that the NBA has elected to be part of the problem in the southern Kaduna crisis and had lost a golden chance to be part of the solution to the conflict in the region.
“How justifiable is the NBA’s decision to exclude Governor El-Rufai from the conference when people like Chief Obasanjo. And governor Nyesom Wike are among the speakers?”, he quizzed.
He also called on all lawyers from the northern part of the country to boycott the conference.
