Two sons of the Chief Justice of Nigerian (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko, have clinched National Assembly tickets for the 2023 elections.
One of the sons, Siraj Ibrahim Tanko, won the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for Bauchi North Senatorial seat.
Siraj defeated two other contestants, including the incumbent, Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa.
Siraj polled 189 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Ibrahim Baba, who secured 177 votes, while Bulkachuwa did not get a single vote.
The other son of the CJN, Sani Ibrahim Tanko, won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives primary election for Shira Giafe Federal Constituency.
Unlike his brother, he was elected unopposed.
