PRESIDENCY TELLS PDP TO STOP BLACKMAILING JUDICIARY.
Written by darling on May 13, 2019
The Presidency has urged the opposition Peoples Democratic Party to stop its alleged smear campaign against the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice ZAINAB BULKACHUWA.
Spokesman to president BUHARI, GARBA SHEHU said that the reports claiming that the Department of State Services had indicted BULKACHUWA of corruption were the latest of this sponsored campaign.
Report says that PDP advised BULKACHUWA to withdraw as a member of the five-man panel of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
The party alleged that as the chairman of the panel, BULKACHUWA would likely be biased in the handling of the tribunal’s proceedings because of her alleged ties to family members tied to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
But the presidency, in its response, noted that the PDP is causing disaffection between the Executive and the Judiciary by virtue of its call.
