NNPP in Kano State Petitions NJC Over Judge’s Alleged Uncomplimentary Comments

NNPP’s Petition to the National Judicial Council

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Kano State has taken action by filing a petition with the National Judicial Council (NJC).

This move comes in response to alleged uncomplimentary comments attributed to Justice Benson Anya, which were directed against the party and its members.


Announcement by NNPP State Chairman

Hashimu Dungurawa, the state Chairman of NNPP, made the announcement regarding the petition to the NJC during a discussion with journalists in Kano State.

The party has expressed its concerns about the comments made by Justice Anya during his judgment on the Kano governorship elections.


Alleged Comments by Justice Anya

Justice Anya’s remarks during the delivery of his judgment have stirred controversy.

He reportedly stated, “Instead of some Kano politicians to be allowed to use banditry and violence to abort democracy in Kano State, justice will be used to stop them from destroying democracy in Kano and upward.”


Dissatisfaction with the Verdict

Dungurawa expressed his dissatisfaction with the judge’s comments, suggesting that the NJC had rendered its verdict based on sentiments.

The NNPP has formally petitioned the NJC to address these concerns and assess whether the judge’s verdict, influenced by alleged death threats, was just and impartial.


Challenging the Judge’s Language

The NNPP Chairman strongly objected to the language used by Justice Anya, asserting that it was inappropriate for a judge, who is expected to uphold the principles of justice and the rule of law.

He highlighted comments that seemed to go beyond the scope of judicial decorum and appeared to cast aspersions on the NNPP’s leadership and members.


The NNPP’s petition to the NJC reflects their commitment to seeking redress for what they perceive as unjust comments and potential bias in the judge’s remarks regarding the Kano governorship elections. This move signals their intention to uphold fairness and integrity in the electoral process.
