A nominee screened by the Senate for the role of justice of the Supreme Court, Jummai Sankey Jo, said that Kaduna State Senators are her “husbands.”
The nominee who is the presiding justice of the Court of Appeal, Owerri division, said this when she appeared before lawmakers on Wednesday.
According to a video on X, formerly Twitter, Sankey who is one of the 11 nominees expressed worry that there was not a single lawmaker from her state of origin, Plateau, among the committee members.
She, however, took solace in the fact that there was a senator from Kaduna State in the team.
She stated that her husband hailed from Kaduna State and according to her, the Kaduna lawmakers were also her husbands.
“I come from Plateau State. I have noticed that I don’t have any representative backing me here. But, my state by marriage is Kaduna State,” she said.
“I’m very happy to see that I have a representative, my husband, Senator Sunday Marshal here; he’s from Kaduna State and I consider them my husbands.”
