PDP, Atiku, Saraki others rejects appointment of acting CJN

President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn-in Justice Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed as the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).

Jusrice Mohammed’s appointment follows the suspension of the incumbent, Justice Walter Onnoghen by the President a few hours ago, as Onnoghen is currently facing charges bordering on non-declaration of some of his assets, especially accounts of foreign currencies at the Code of Conduct of Tribunal (CCT).

President Buhari is swearing in 65-year-old Justice Tanko Muhammad, from Bauchi state, who is the most senior justice of Supreme Court of Nigeria after Onnoghen, a few days after denying that he was behind Onnoghen’s trial…

Justice Tanko Muhammad, attended Government Secondary School, Azare where he obtained the West Africa School Certificate in 1973 before he proceeded to Ahmadu Bello University where he received a bachelor’s degree in Law in 1980.

He later obtained a Master and Doctorate (Ph D) degrees from the same university in 1984 and 1998 respectively.
