‘INEC hired el-Rufai’s personal lawyer to defend case at tribunal’

Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) Shehu Sani has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of alleged conspiracy by hiring Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai’s personal lawyer as her counsel at the tribunal.

According to the Senator, hiring Governor el-Rufai’s personal lawyer in a case the governor himself is a party is an attempt to truncate justice.

Speaking with newsmen at his Kaduna residence, the Senator who is challenging the National Assembly result of the 9th March election in which he was a contestant, averred that A.U Mustapha has been Governor el-Rufai’s personal lawyer in all of the court cases of the governor including four cases of defamation filed against him by the governor.

“The same lawyer is the one representing el-Rufai in a case between the governor and the Union newspapers, and another case between the governor and the Ahmed Datti of Baze University “.
