Acting President Prof Osinbanjo Set To Send Onoghen's Name For Senate Confirmati by modath(f): 3:49am On Feb 08, 2017
The National Judicial Council had earlier forwarded Onnoghen’s name to the President to be named the new CJN based on the recommendation of the Federal Judicial Service Commission.

According to the law, the President is expected to forward the name of the nominee to the Senate for confirmation.

There have been speculations that Buhari is not ready to send the name of Onnoghen to the Senate for confirmation.

But one of our correspondents learnt, on Tuesday, that Osinbajo was set to send Onnoghen’s name to the Senate this week to beat the February 10 date, which the Supreme Court’s Justice acting appointment is expected to expire.

A source familiar with the arrangement said the nomination would be sent to the Senate on Tuesday or Wednesday (today).

“I can confirm to you that Onnoghen’s name will be sent to the Senate this week. The name will be sent today (Tuesday) or Wednesday before February 10 that his acting appointment will expire,” the source stated...

When asked what was responsible for the delay in sending his name since he was recommended, the source said the government had been busy carrying out background check on him following the recent searchlight on the judiciary.

“We are all witnesses to the recent discoveries in the judiciary. The government needs to be sure that whoever is going to be put at the head of that arm of government has a clean bill of health.

“The background checks have been concluded and the government is satisfied with its findings,” the source added.

There are, however, fears that the Senate may not consider Onnoghen’s nomination immediately as the National Assembly is currently on recess to allow committee’s work on the 2017 Appropriation Bill currently before the lawmakers.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, declined comment on the matter.

If his nomination is confirmed as the nation’s 17th CJN, Onnoghen, who hails from Cross River State, will become the first southern justice to head the judiciary in about 30 years.

Justice Ayo Gabriel Irikefe, who retired in 1987, was the last southern CJN.

Just beat the deadline ,nothing like set... Just Nike it, maybe some of the irresponsibly squandered goodwill may be regained & a semblance of confidence on this Journey to Nowhereville will be restored. ..

Of all The Mr Bean like exploits of this government, this ridiculousness takes the cake, then added some milk shake to flush it down because there is no rhyme or reason save for political machination against 2019... Which unfortunately for them, any sane/discerning mind can decipher with no stress.....Nuff said.... lipsrsealed





P.S....Quote me objectively & with good points... Robust discuss is sure... However if Mo's contributions prompts headache/bellyache in you, get your medication & say some hail marys & move on. (We all don't get to have ALL WE WANT IN LIFE ..)

If not & you insist on jumping like a deranged gorilla....You will get it.. What IT is, you will find out.... cool

Magu is acting EFCC chairman

Osinbajo, acting President

Onnoghen, acting CJN


They should probably join Nollywood and cement their careers

They had all the time to do whatever background check and had to wait till dying minute to be through with it. This administration will go down in history as one that loves courting controversies that are unwarranted, avoided and laughable. A task that will need a simple "a,b,c step", this administration will start from " z,y,x" just to cause controversy

Acting President Osinbajo is a Law Professor.I believe he knows the consequence of not sending Onnoghen's name to the senate before his tenure expires tomorrow.Let's wait and see how this drama unfolds .
