Bauchi – Candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) for Bauchi Senatorial district in the general elections, Faruk Mustapha has expressed optimism in Nigeria’s judicial system after alleging that Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa, the senator representing the district ‘stole’ his mandate.

Mustapha said his party, NNPP has filed a petition before the Tribunal challenging the victory of Sen. Bulkachuwa as senator for Bauchi North senatorial district.
According to him, the exhibits comprised mainly result sheets from polling units and wards across the 7 local government areas of Bauchi North senatorial district.
His words, “I have confidence in the judiciary, most especially, under the leadership of Justice Tanko Muhammad. I also believe that the Tribunal that is handling my case have men and women of integrity, whom I absolutely have confidence in. I believe they will do justice to the case.
