Good morning readers! Here are some of the Nigerian news online from newspapers:

1.A group, Access to Justice, on Sunday asked President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Adamu Bulkachuwa, to step down from the Election Tribunal hearing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar’s petition against the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The justice advocacy group said this had become necessary as Bulkachuwa is married to a Senator-elect on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mohammed Bulkachuwa.

2.Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, Sunday night, presented staff office to the newly appointed Emir of Gaya, Ibrahim Abdulkadir.

The presentation took place 48 hours after a State High Court stopped the governor, the State House of Assembly and the Attorney-General from implementing the splitting of the Kano Emirate.

3.Wudil indigenes in Kano State have appealed to the State House of Assembly and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to revisit the recent creation of Gaya Emirate Council under which they have been grouped.

Alhaji Yawale Muhammad-Idris, spokesman of the indigenes, who made the call shortly after a stakeholders’ meeting on Sunday in Wudil, headquarters of Wudil Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, appealed to the State Government to return them to the old Kano Emirate where they rightly belong.

4.The Director, Corporate Communications, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Mr Isaac Okoroafor has said that no money is missing or stolen from the bank’s coffers as reported in some section of the media.

5.Troops of the Nigerian Army have arrested a policeman and a soldier for illegal possession of ammunition.
