A disturbing video has emerged of Senator Adamu Muhammad Bulkachuwa, the current senator representing Bauchi North senatorial district, bragging about how he influenced the decision of his wife, Zainab Bulkachuwa, a retired Justice of the Appeal Court.

Bulkachuwa bowed out of the bench after clocking the statutory retirement age of 70 years for justices of the Appeal Court in 2020.

The video obtained by Naija247news showed the statement was made reportedly during the valedictory session of the Senate.

Particularly my wife, whose freedom and independence I encroached upon when she was in office, and she has been very tolerant and accepted my encroachment and extended her help to my colleagues,” Bulkachuwa said in the video before he was interrupted by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.

Unsettled by the statement, Lawan told him, “I don’t think this is a good idea going towards this direction.”

Professor Ndubuisi Ekekwe, who shared the video on his verified Twitter handle on Monday, said, “we must give Senator Bulkachuwa a national award as a whistleblower of the month.”

Ekekwe further added that he hoped that retired Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa would give a press release on how she was influenced.

He wrote: “Unbelievable that a senator whose wife was the president of the court of appeal could brag how he influenced her decisions. He embarrassed the Senate president by revealing the open truth about Nigeria’s judiciary. We must give Senator Bulkachuwa a national award as a whistleblower of the month. Hope retired Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa will give a press release on how she was influenced! What a nation.”(
