The Nigerian Senate is currently screening Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Naija News understands that Justice Tanko is being screened in an executive session with the upper chamber.

The confirmation was included in the Order Paper of the day. It was, thus, expected that Mr Tanko will be screened and confirmed during plenary – as is the custom.

The screening comes after President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday requested the confirmation of Mr Muhammad as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Naija News understands that the request of the President was sequel to the recommendation by the National Judicial Council (NJC) to make Justice Tanko the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Recall that Mr Muhammad was first appointed in January after the President suspended the then Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen, who was accused of false declaration of asset.
