Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa has denied ever confessing that he influenced judicial decisions of his wife, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa when she was President of the Court of Appeal. This is despite the video of the contrary having gone viral on the internet.
Recall, Bulkachuwa who represented Bauchi North had, during the valedictory session of the 9th Assembly, confessed that he used his position to ask favours for his colleagues from his wife.
However, following the backlash that trailed his odious confession, the politician had recanted saying the then Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, did not allow him to finish his remarks during their valedictory session as he claimed that he was interrupted abruptly.
Speaking with BBC Hausa Service on Sunday, Bulkachuwa said he was misquoted.
His words:” I was not even allowed to finish, I just started by thanking her(wife) saying she was patient with me as she was a legal practitioner and I am a politician.”
“I wanted to explain the kind of the help she offered, there are many kinds of support that professionals in various fields, such as legal practitioners, doctors or engineers can offer in their respective works. Know that this assistance does not involve any illegal or unethical deeds.”
“I have never encroached on her profession or attempted to influence her judicial decisions. These are not even discussed in our home, in our personal relationship,” he said.
