“Three Kaduna senators are my husbands” – Supreme Court justice nominee [VIDEO]

One of the 11 nominees screened by the Senate for appointment as justice of the Supreme Court, Jummai Sankey, has described the three senators from Kaduna State as her “husbands”.

Sankey, 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 seen by Politics Nigeria, the senior lawyer had 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.

Justice Sankey went on to say 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 representative, my husband, Senator Sunday Marshal here; he’s from Kaduna State and I consider them my husbands.”
