Aisha Buhari’s brother drags Gov. Bindow to court for alleged certificate forgery  


Brother to the first lady, Aisha Buhari, Mahamood Halilu, has accused Adamawa State Governor, Jibrilla Bindow of parading fake ordinary level certificate.

Halilu, who alongside other aspirants vied for the All Progressive Congress governorship ticket in the state but lost to Bindow on the grounds of his claim has dragged the incumbent before the law court charging him with certificate forgery.

The president’s wife’s younger brother justified his action while addressing the media on Wednesday saying, “We are not in court because we don’t love our party or its candidate (Bindow), but because of the certificate forgery scandal against him,  which we have also ascertained to be true. And this is why we are in court seeking this two prayers –that the court looks into the allegations of certificate forgery against the governor and interpret the laws in our constitution against certificate forgers and disqualify him if found guilty.

“What we don’t want to allow is to work relentlessly for the victory of the APC in the state only for the opposition to reclaim victory through technicalities.

“We are also want the court to order the replacement of the governor as the candidate of the party for not being a fit and proper candidate.”
