Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa Withdraws Herself From Election Petition Tribunal

Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa has recused herself from the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja.

The People’s democratic party had asked Justice Bulkachuwa to recuse herself because she is married to a senator-elect of the All Progressives Congress.

Counsel to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, Livy Ozuokwu asked the Chairman of the tribunal to recuse herself on the grounds that she will be biased in the case.

On Wednesday, Justice Bulkachuwa recused herself after a prolonged sitting.

More to come.
