The rumours making the rounds that the ministerial nominee from Taraba state, Senator Sani Abubakar Danladi, have been barred by the supreme court from holding political office for the next ten years have been debunked.
The ministerial nominee who yesterday broke his silence through his counsel, Ujah Israel Ujah, in a Press statement issued to Journalists in Jalingo, the state capital, described the rumours as false.
Since his nomination, reports on his alleged ban from holding political office for the next ten years, have been flying around the nooks and crannies of the state and the country at large.
The allegations that many believed would prevent him from being screened by the members of the National Assembly.
Describing the story as false and an attempt to paint him in bad light, the story, according to him was not only meant to put him in bad light but to also present him as ineligible for the position for which President Bola Tinubu has nominated him in the eyes of the approving agency.
Citing the court judgement that exonerated him, he wondered why some few elements have continued to soil his hard-earned reputation.
He said; “The Court found merit in the case and on October 15, 2021, set aside its earlier decision as being a decision given without jurisdiction.
“It is clear for the blind to see and audible for the deaf to hear that there is no subsisting judgment of any court in Nigeria disqualifying our client from either contesting an election or barring him from holding any public office.”
