Drama As Kebbi Assembly Refuses To Confirm Chief Judge Over Certificate Scandal

There was a mild drama today in Kebbi as the State House of Assembly said it will not confirm the appointment of the State Acting Chief Judge, Justice Asabe Karatu, over alleged falsification of her primary school certificate.

The refusal to confirm her appointment followed a motion by the Majority Leader, Alhaji Bello Yakubu, representing Birnin Kebbi South, during plenary on Wednesday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the motion was seconded by Alhaji Hamza Bello (Danko/Wasagu West) and was unanimously supported by the lawmakers.

The Speaker, Alhaji Abdulmumeen Kamba, said the House would not clear any nominee with falsified certificates.

“This honorable house will not clear any nominee who comes before it with `altered’ credentials.

“It is now for the government to decide on who to send as a nominee to the house,” Kamba said.

The Acting Chief Judge was appointed by Gov. Atiku Bagudu on Oct. 30, 2017 following the retirement of Justice Bala.
