The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said that the decision of Justice Tanko Muhammad to vacate office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria is commendable.
Atiku in a statement via his official Facebook page, wished the Justice Tanko well even as he commended the former Chief Justice for his action and service to the nation.
The former Vice President wished the newly sworn-in Acting CJN, Justice Olukayode Ariowoola, success as he steps in to fill the gap while he assured the new acting CJN of his commitment to advancing the frontiers of judicial independence and the promotion of separation of powers as the bedrock of deepening democracy and development.
You would recall that Justice Tanko resigned his position on Monday over some undisclosed health issues.
President Muhammadu Buhari subsequently, swore in Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
