The senate has screened Aisha Al Hassan, from Taraba state. She is a lawyer and former attorney general and commissioner of Justice in Taraba state. She was also in the last senate.
During her presentation, she debunked claims that her ministerial appointment is a compensation for her failed gubernatorial bid. She contested and lost the Taraba governorship election under APC. She was the only female governorship candidate during the 2015 governorship election.
She said corruption in the judiciary takes many forms and not necessarily by giving and taking of money. She said the bar and the bench are the key culprit in corruption allegations in the judiciary.
She was asked to take a bow and go.
