Abdullahi Sule, governor of Nasarawa State, has alleged that two Christian judges in the State’s governorship election petition tribunal conspired to remove him from office over religious sentiments.
Last week Monday, the tribunal in its judgement sacked the governor from office.
DailyPost reports that the governor made the claim in Abuja on Tuesday while speaking at the 2023 Peace and Development Submit for university students.
According to Sule, before the March 18 governorship election in Nasarawa, Bishop Abioye of Living Faith had asked Christians to vote for Christians only.
The governor claimed that the statement contributed to his sack by the tribunal.
He accused the tribunal judges of hinging their judgement on religious sentiments, instead of the facts presented before them.
“A lot of you must have read the tribunal ruling in our state when two of the judges, who are Christians, decided that a Christian won the election and one Muslim judge decided that it is the Muslim who won the election,” the governor alleged.
