Defection: Tambuwal Rejects Chukwu As Presiding Judge

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has appealed to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court of Nigeria in Abuja to take away his case, asking for legal interpretation as to the lawfulness of his defection from the PDP to APC, from Court 8, presided over by Justice ESJ Chukwu.

According to him,,this was imperative because from his antecedents in handling similar cases, the judge had demonstrated bias.

Tambuwal, in a letter dated 30th November, cited many cases in which Justice Chukwu’s rulings had stalemated proceedings and compelled the defendants to seek justice in the Appeal Court.

The Speaker noted that Justice Chukwu, “having made a pronouncement on similar issues, in similar cases, decided by him… has an iron cast judicial position or opinion in respect of his (Tambuwal’s) own case.”
