Buhari Nominates Eko, Augie Supreme Court Justices by osinbanjoisaliar: 7:39pm On Jul 21, 2016
ABUJA- President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Senate to screen and subsequently confirm Hon. Justices Ejembi Eko and Amina Augie as Justices of the Supreme Court.


Buhari in a letter to Senate President Bukola Saraki explained that the two nominees will represent North-central and North-west‎ respectively.

President Buhari said, “In accordance with Section 231 subsection (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended, I have the pleasure to forward for your confirmation, the nomination of the two nominees as Justices of the Supreme Court of Nigeria,”

Also yesterday at Plenary, Senate President Saraki read a letter from President Buhari seeking the screening and approval of names of former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba and 18 others as chairman and members of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

In the letter, President Buhari pleaded with the Senate to give the request an expeditious consideration and confirmation of the NDDC board of directors’ nominees.

Besides Senator Egba who hails from Cross River state, others appointed by the President are Nsima Udo Ekere who is to serve as the Managing Director of the Commission.

He hails from Akwa Ibom state. Adjogbe Ajenakevwe is to serve as executive director in charge of projects and hails from Delta state. Mene Ienyie Derek, executive director is to head finance and ‎administration and hails from Rivers state.

Other board members are Donatus Enyinnah (Abia state), Frank Samuel George (Akwa Ibom state); Brambaifa Nelson (Bayelsa state); Sylvester Effefiom Nsa (Cross River state); Ogaga Ifowodo (Delta state); Uwuilekhue Saturday (Edo state) and Osita Bonaventure Izunaso (Imo state).

Olatokunbo Ayotunde Ajasin (Ondo state); Harry Iboroma Dabibi (Rivers state); Bernard Banfa (North-central zone); Yahaya Mohammed (North-east zone); Mustapha Dankadai (North-west ‎zone); Igo Weli (Niger Delta region); Mahmoud Isa-Dutse (Federal Ministry of Finance) and Abdul-Kazeem Kasumi Bayero (Federal Ministry of Environment) also formed the list.

The consideration and subsequent confirmation of the nominees will be done when the Senate resumes from its 6-week break in September, 2016.

Next thing they would tell us is that there are no qualified lawyers and judges from South South and South East Zones to be appointed to the Supreme Court but all the educationally less disadvantaged states in the North will have more then enough as they would be qualified by force.

My hatred for Buhari grew when Nairalanders voted for a stone over him


The fool that nicknamed Nigeria the "GIANT OF AFRICA" must be stoned to death

If he dodges the stones, Stone more and more and more

We are not GIANT at all, just Tall dwarfs

I want to say a big congratulations to Hon Justice Ejembi Eko. In life no matter how men due to sentiments and ethnic bigotry tries to pull one down, God has his way of fighting for the oppressed.
Over there in your state you were denied being the chief judge because of your origin (Idoma) but now you are being nominated as a justice of the supreme court and who knows, you might become the chief justice of Nigeria tomorrow?

Congratulations once more!

Yes of course, I will grab everything grabbable for my people because I love them. I met with Buhari but we discussed those things that are only of national importance. I have no hand in his nomination as it was purely based on merit and not on principle of distribution of political positions. I encouraged barrister Ulegede to take his practice to the next level but he decided to remain a local champion so it wasn't my fault that Justice Ejembi Eko was nominated. He's more than qualify for that position.
