Why Kebbi Assembly did not confirm CJ —Speaker
The Speaker of the Kebbi State House of Assembly, Abdulmumini Kamba, has said Justice Asabe Karatu was not rejected because she is a Christian as being circulated on social media.
In a statement on Sunday, Kamba said there was an issue with the primary school certificate submitted by the acting CJ.
He said the governor had sought the confirmation of Justice Asabe Karatu as Chief Judge of the state when he wrote to the Assembly on June 2, 2018, as required by the constitution.
The statement read in part, “However, the Primary School Leaving Certificate presented by Justice Karatu was altered severally, including an alteration to the date of birth from May 1952 to May 1954.
“On account of the alterations and other inconsistencies in her credentials, the House rejected the request by the governor and declined to confirm her as Chief Judge of Kebbi State.”
The Speaker said contrary to the story making the rounds, Justice Karatu was not denied confirmation on religious grounds.
