Justice Tanko Muhammad has been confirmed by the Senate as the country’s substantive Chief Justice, replacing Walter Onnoghen who resigned from the position after being convicted for violating the code of conduct rule.


The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the appointment after screening the nominee Justice Muhammad, who was until his confirmation the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari had, last Thursday, forwarded to the Senate a letter requesting the confirmation of Muhammad as substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.
The President, in the letter of request, said the nomination was sequel to the recommendation made to that effect by the National Judicial Council.
