Bulkachuwa’s Confession Has Put Nigerian Judges On Trial – Labour Party


The Labour Party (LP) has said all eyes are on the judiciary on the verdict it will deliver at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) currently ongoing in Abuja.

The party stated this following the confession by Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa on the floor of the senate that he used his position to influence the decisions made by his wife, Zainab Bulkachuwa, a retired President of the Court of Appeal.

The senator confessed that he used his position to gain some favour for his colleagues from his wife.

He had said “I look at faces in this chamber whom have come to me and sought for my help when my wife was the President of the Court of Appeal, and I’m sure…

“And I must thank particularly, my wife, whose freedom and independence I encroached upon while she was in office, and she has been very tolerant and accepted my encroachment, and extended her help to my colleagues…”

Bulkachuwa was however quickly cut short from revealing further details by the immediate past Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.

Speaking in an interview with WorldVAfrica, Chief Spokesperson of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LP-PCC), Dr Yunusa Tanko said Bulkachuwa’s confession has put Nigerian judges on trial as all eyes are on them to do the right thing.

He said “We wish that Senator Bulkachuwa was allowed to spill the beans more on how the wife helped the senators. He was cut short by the former Senate President while he was making his expose”.

“That would have exposed to the Nigerian people how this country was being run by manipulators and those who have encroached into our legitimacy as a people. So for us, we are happy that he was able to revealed the one he said before he was cut short”.

“That puts our judges on trial at the moment because all eyes are on them to do the right thing. In that case, we want to go to the public opinion trial. We hope that the judges will be able to wash themselves clean of this accusation that was in the public domain”.

“Whether we have confidence in the judiciary does not arise again. The judgment that they will deliver will make Nigerians to decide who they are and how we will perceive them to be”.
