Senator Confesses To Influencing His Wife’s Decisions As A Judge

Senator representing Bauchi north, Adamu Bulkachuwa, has recounted how he encroached on his wife, Zainab Bulkachuwa’s independence as a judge to favour himself and his colleagues in the senate.

Zainab, a former president of the court of appeal, made history as the first female to serve in the position.

She was in charge of the 2007 Sokoto State governorship election petition tribunal and the suit in which Timipre Sylva, former Bayelsa governor, challenged the nomination of Seriake Dickson, an ex-governor of the state, as the flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Bulkachuwa while speaking during the senate valedictory session on Saturday stated that he usually influenced his wife’s decisions while she was a judge.
