CJN Quizes 6 Chief Judges Sept 6, Over Conflicting Orders


The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad will on Monday, September 6, interrogate six Chief Judges over the conflicting court orders that emanated from their jurisdictions recently. 

The affected Chief Judges are that of Rivers, Kebbi, Cross Rivers, Anambra, Jigawa and Imo States.

Part from the six Chief Judges, there are indications that the Chief Judge, Delta State High Court, has also been summoned by the CJN over a recent order he made in respect of the suit challenging the continued stay in office of Governor Mai Mala Buni, as the Caretaker Committee Chahairman of the All Progressives Congress.

Already, the CJN has demanded for the records of proceedings in all the suits from which conflicting exparte orders were made in the last one month.

The Director of Information, National Judicial Council NJC Mr Soji Oye confirmed the development to a news correspondent during a telephone chat.

It was learnt that the move is to reset the anti-corruption efforts of the CJN in a bid to entrench a new culture of accountability in the judicial system.

Justice Muhammad is also likely to meet with the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association in the course of the week, over the matter.
