Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has sworn in Justice Tanko Muhammad as the new Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN.

Muhammad’s swearing-in occurred at the State House, Abuja on Wednesday.

Muhammad took over from Justice Walter Onnoghen who resigned after he was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari over false resource revelation.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, later discovered Onnoghen needing and requested his sack by the administration.

Muhammad was named by Buhari as acting CJN all through the time of the presidential decision until of late when the National Judicial Commission, NJC, suggested him for the arrangement as substantive CJN.

Buhari, in this way, sent his name to the Senate for endorsement as CJN, which was done, clearing the route for his swearing-in on Wednesday by Buhari.
