Justice Bulkachuwa breaks silence over husband’s statement 

Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa has maintained her judicial integrity. She is the wife of Adamu Bulkachuwa, a senator who served as Bauchi North’s representative in the 9th Assembly.

She was responding to remarks made by her husband that she, the recently deceased President of the Court of Appeal, had used her position to solicit favors for him and his colleagues.

During the closing remarks of the 9th Assembly, Bulkachuwa had stated on the Senate floor, “I look at faces in this chamber who have come to me and asked for my assistance while my wife was the President of the Court of Appeal, and I’m convinced…

“My attention has been drawn to the trending video of what was said by my husband Senator Adamu M. Bulkachuwa. I want to state categorically that I never at any time compromised my oath of office to favour any party who appeared before me throughout my judicial career spanning 40 years of service to my country.

“My decisions were always based on the facts, the law and in accordance with my conscience and oath of office.

“Also, as President of the Court of Appeal, my fellow justices of the court can attest to the fact that I never interfered with the independence of any of the justices of the court in the discharge of their judicial functions,” she said.

Bulkachuwa had earlier claimed that his statements had been distorted in an interview with BBC Hausa. He added that the former Senate President, Ahmdd Lawan, had cut him off as he was giving an explanation.
