JUST IN: Supreme Court Rejects Suit Challenging Bulkachuwa’s Election

The Supreme Court has dismissed a suit seeking to sack Adamu Bulkachuwa, husband of the Court of Appeal’s President, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa dismissed as Senator.

In a judgment on Monday, a five-man panel of the court threw out the appeal by Usman Tuggar, contesting the election of Bulkachuwa as Senator representing Bauchi North senatorial district on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Justice John Okoro, in the lead judgement, dismissed the appeal by Tuggar against the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Abuja delivered on June 11, 2019, which upheld an earlier judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, to the effect that the suit was statute barred, having been filed outside the 14 days allows by the Constitution.
