Rumpus over Bulkachuwa’s chairmanship of Presidential Election Tribunal



Rumpus over Bulkachuwa’s chairmanship of Presidential Election Tribunal

Following the commencement of the sitting of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, there is rumpus within the political,security and legal circles over the chairmanship of the Tribunal by Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, the President of the Court of Appeal. The furor within the political circle is directly linked to Justice Bulkachuwa’s affinity to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Justice Bulkachuwa is the wife of Adamu Mohammed Bulkachuwa, who is currently a Senator-elect representing Bauchi North Senatorial District, on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

As a result of her direct association with leading members of the APC, there are subdued complaints that the President of the Court of Appeal and Chairman of the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is not qualified to head the Tribunal.

Reports have it that she is an interested party and is therefore highly compromised.
‪Investigations have revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC, deliberately ceded the Bauchi North Senatorial ticket to Mohammed Bulkachuwa in order to use him to influence his wife, who the APC believed will head the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

To this end, it was gathered ‪that President Buhari and the APC, planned a total and complete infiltration of the judiciary before the 2019 General Elections, by removing Justice Walter Onnoghen as Chief Justice of the Federation and deliberately making Justice Bulkachuwa’s husband a Senator in order to influence her decision at the upcoming Presidential Tribunal.

‪This newspaper authoritatively gathered that the APC may have ordered the Bulkachuwas to trash all Appeals of the PDP emanating from the NASS and Governorship Elections Tribunals in favour of the ruling APC as evidenced in today’s ruling of the Appeal Court on the Osun Governorship Election.

‪More revelations show that Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa was also mentioned in a secret memo submitted to President Buhari by the Directorate of State Services (DSS). In that memo, the DSS described Justice Bulkachuwa as “incurably corrupt”. ‪The DSS in that secret memo to President Buhari also accused Justice Bulkachuwa of engaging in bribery and taking kickbacks from judges she assigned to lucrative and juicy cases.

“‪Justice Bulkachuwa is an interested Party, accused of corruption and is therefore not competent to chair the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. She should recuse herself immediately as her membership of the panel will render the panel invalid, biased and partisan”
