Acting CJN, Tanko Muhammad Presides Over Supreme Court’s Sitting

The Supreme Court has resumed sitting on Monday with the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, presiding over a five-man panel of the court.

Monday is the first working day after the last Friday’s suspension of the CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Justice Muhammad was immediately sworn in by President Buhari, in the stead of Onnoghen, on Friday.

Others sitting alongside Justice Muhammad on the panel at the Monday’s sitting are Justices Mary Peter-Odili, Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, Amiru Sanusi and Paul Galinje.

There are 10 cases listed for hearing on the Supreme Court’s Monday’s cause list published on the court’s website.
