- Lauretta Onochie says she feels sorry for Dangiwa Umar
- The former military governor had recently alleged that Buhari is favouring a particular section of the country in his appointments
- According to Onochie, Umar relied on fake news to make his submission
Presidential aide Lauretta Onochie has claimed that former military governor of Kaduna state, Col. Abubakar Dangiwa Umar, relied on fake news for his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The outspoken Onochie said she felt sorry for the respected former governor.
Going further, she argued that fake news strips one of every dignity.
"When I saw this untrue headline, I felt very sorry for Col. Umar Rtd. He's been feeding on fake news. Fake news can be damaging. Responding to fake news can be embarrassing. Fake news strips one of every dignity," she wrote on Twitter.
Recall that in his letter, Umar accused Buhari of giving undue preference to some sections of the country over others in his appointments.
Specifically, he faulted the president on the issue of Justice Onnoghen when he was to be made a substantive chief justice of Nigeria and Justice Monica Dongban Mensem's short term appointment as chief judge of the Nigerian Court of Appeal.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Zainab Bulkachuwa, the immediate past president of the Court of Appeal and, historically, the first female Nigerian to occupy that position, has opened up on how she handled home and her job.
The female justice who retired recently after 45 years in the judiciary, said she learnt how to separate her home from her job at the early stage of her career.
Surprisingly, even while she held the position as a judge, she still cooked and ensured the family had the best of her time.
In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), she said: "At a very early stage, I learnt to separate the two - my work at home and my work in the office."
Explaining more about the job and her home, Justice Bulkachuwa added that she always sat in the office till the last minute, but once she got back home, “I am a different person; I become a mother, I become a wife.”
The retired justice told the medium that as she gets home, she heads to the kitchen to be sure of what is being cooked.
She recalled how, at home, she would put her growing baby on her back and only work when he or she sleeps off.
She said as she leaves office, she has no regrets and is happy with what she had done on the job.
"I have tried my best, I have done the best I could for my country…so I am happy," she stressed.
She seemed excited about her retirement because she said she was looking forward to waking up and resting when she wanted to.
