The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has come out to say that the withdrawal of invitation to Nasir el-Rufai to the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference is parochial, myopic, and jejune.
MURIC director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola revealed this in a recent statement.
According to him, a learned group would not do such a thing as it is high level prejudice.
He added that the fact that NBA took the ill-advised step on account of a petition written by a group, Open Bar Initiative, means NBA is impatient, intolerant and selfish.
His words, “The NBA yesterday removed the name of El-Rufai from the list of speakers at its 2020 Virtual Annual General Conference (AGC).
“I describe NBA’s action as parochial, myopic and jejune. It is high level prejudice. NBA as a group of learned literati should know better.
“The fact that NBA took the ill-advised step on account of a petition written by a group, Open Bar Initiative exposes NBA’s impatience, intolerance and self-conceit.”
