SENATE TO SCREEN ARIWOOLA AS CJN ON WEDNESDAY
Written by Kayode Sanni on September 20, 2022
The Senate is expected to screen for confirmation the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, OLUKAYODE ARIWOOLA on Wednesday.
Senate President, AHMAD LAWAN made the announcement at plenary earlier today.
LAWAN accordingly appealed to all Senators to be present at plenary on Wednesday for the required screening of the Acting CJN for substantive capacity as Chief Justice of Nigeria.
The letter for confirmation of JUSTICE ARIWOOLA as CJN was received by the Senate on Tuesday, the 26th of July from President MUHAMMADU BUHARI but the Senate could not consider the request as it adjourned for the annual long recess the following day.
You would recall that ARIWOOLA was appointed as the acting CJN after IBRAHIM TANKO MUHAMMAD resigned as the head of the country’s judiciary in June 2022.
