News Update: President Buhari Appoints Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria

The presidency has sanctioned the appointment of a Chief Justice of Nigeria to stand in for Mr. Mohammed who recently retired.

Twenty-four hours to the exit of the retiring Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Mahmud Mohammed, President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Justice Walter Nkanu Onnoghen as the acting CJN, according to the Tribune.

His swearing in, is scheduled for today (Thursday) at the Aso Rock presidential villa. The National Judicial Council (NJC) recommended him as Mohammed’s successor-in-office.

Buhari, as the appointing authority, is yet to send his name to the Senate for confirmation. With Mohammed bowing out tomorrow after attaining the mandatory retirement age of 70 years, Buhari reportedly consented on Wednesday to swear Onnoghen in, in acting capacity, to avoid constitutional crisis with the vacuum that Mohammed’s exit would have created.

Details later.
