The upper legislative chamber, the Senate on Wednesday confirmed the nomination of Honourable Justice John Inyang Okoro as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
Justice Okoro’s confirmation was approved at plenary after consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters headed by Senator Umaru Dahiru.
Commenting after his confirmation, Senate President David Mark, congratulated Justice Okoro saying his appointment shows geo-political spread.
Senator Mark also urged the National Judicial Commission (NJC) to always alert the National Assembly when there are such vacancies to fill.
