Reps Sit to Reduce Buhari's Executive Power...See Details

The House of Representatives has sponsored a bill which will see the involvement of National Judicial Council ,NJC, in the procedure for the removal of head of courts to avoid victimisation by the executive.
Before now, the NJC can only recommend an erring judge to the President, but if the Bill is eventually passed, the body would be involved in the discipline or removal of any erring judge.

The bill passed second reading on the floor yesterday.

Garba Datti Mohammed, the Kaduna Rep who sponsored the bill said the principal aim of the proposed amendment “is to ensure that judicial officers serving as heads of courts are not victimised through removal by executive fiat, acting in concert with the legislature without any established or verifiable evidence.”

He pointed out that the objective of the Bill was to “subject judicial personnel serving as heads of courts established under Section 6 (5) of the Constitution can be removed only upon the advice of National Judicial Council.
