Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the controversies generated over the dis-invitation of the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai by the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA

The withdrawal of El-rufai’s invitation at the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA conference has suddenly turned into a religious warfare.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), had described the NBA’s decision as parochial,myopic and jejune, instructing muslim lawyers not to participate in the event.

Also the Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria (MULAN) in Kaduna State had shunned participation in the NBA, Annual General Conference, AGC, in protest against El-Rufai’s withdrawal.

Reacting to this, Femi Fani Kayode in a tweet via his twitter handle noted that the act is not only shameful but an indictment to us all.

He wrote:

“Can someone please explain to me how the withdrawal of an invitation to speak at an event held by an association of learned men and seasoned professionals ends up degenerating into a Christian versus Muslim matter?

“This is not only shameful but is also a grave indictment on us all.”


  1. I am surprised to see Femi Fani Kayode saying this. Is Femi surprised to see what is happening or playing out now. If he is, that means he did not even know anything concerning Nigeria all these while. Even us who can be called lay men when it comes to the politics of Nigeria had known this thing that is happening now with the NBA as the major problem of Nigeria
    I am talking of RELIGION
    This is the reason why this nation is not moving forward at all, religion…..
    People try to use religion to settle issues in this country. If they don’t say they are Christians, they will say they are Muslims
    Until we stop this attitude, of making everything look as if it is inclined on religion, I do not think we will make any head way

  2. If NBA withdrawn speakership invitation from governor el rufai that suppose not to lead to the argument because withdrawal of the invitation is based on some certain issues which is not addressed by the said governor. I hope this will serve as lesson to others governors.

  3. Why this issue is generating problem among religious bodies, more than 3000 people signed the petition paper, not only him, the rest of the governors should learn a lesson and also attend the critical issue immediately without sentimental.
