#2019PresidentialElectionTribunal now on Recess, Resumes by 2:00pm

by on May 22, 2019

The matter for deliberations was the motion on notice filed by the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, demanding for the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa to disqualify herself from the Presidential Tribunal.

Parties from both sides deliberated in open court on reasons why she should recuse herself from charing the Presidential Tribunal.

While the PDP stood its grounds based on Justice Bulkachuwa’s culpable affiliation to the APC by virtue of her husband and sons membership of the Party, the APC and INEC based their arguments on conventions and gender.

However, the APC lead counsel, Chief Olanikpekun, SAN, at the end of his arguments actually agreed with the PDP that Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa should disqualify herself from the Tribunal and step aside.
