President Buhari Appoints New Supreme Court Justice, Rejects One Bill by Mysteryque: 2:29pm On Nov 21, 2018
President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Musa Abaji as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.



He made this announcement via a letter he sent to the Senate on Tuesday.



In the letter which was read by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, he said the appointment was according to the advice of the National Judicial Council.



“In line with 1999 constitution upon the advice of the National Judicial Council, I hereby refer for confirmation the appointment of Justice Musa Abaji as the Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.





“While hoping that this is expeditiously considered by the Senate, accept the assurances of my highest regard,” the letter read.



In another letter, the president declined assent to the Institute of Chartered Biochemist and Molecular Biology of Nigeria Bill 2018.



He said his decision to withhold assent to the bill was because, if passed, the bill will infringe on the mandate of the National University Commission and the National Board for Technology Education.



He also said there are drafting issues on the bill.



“Pursuant of section 68(4) of the constitution, I hereby convey to the senate the decision on the 5th November 2018 to decline presidential assent to the Institute of Chartered Biochemist and Molecular Biology of Nigeria bill 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly for the following reasons;



“A. The provisions of section 13(3) to give the chartered biochemist and molecular biology power to approve academic program and even close down programs in tertiary institutions will infringe on our mandate of the National University Commission and the National Board for Technology Education.



“B. There are certain drafting and administrative issues in the bill, including the failure in section 13(cool, 14 and 22(2) to designate a chairman for both the practice and publicity committee and or specific process for how a chairman should emerge for either of the education, practice and publicity committees.



“This can lead to confusion in the administration of the council,” the president wrote in his letter.

FTC sweet sha! dedicated to lovers of equity and inclusive governance.

I think equity they say abhors double taking.
This 97% v 3% mantra nonsense of PMB is gradually destroying the foundation of Nigeria.

Hope Buhari is not arranging the Supreme Court Justices that would sit for his case when we finally help his sorry-ass rest in Daura next year.

The desperation of BuhariAPC to squash any restructuring of Nigeria is fuelling this excessive Nepotism just to render southern voices mute by force.

I suppose you didn't read this article before commenting. Look at this if you can:

"In the letter which was read by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, he said the appointment was according to the advice of the National Judicial Council."

A Nigerian president doesn't appoint a Supreme Court judge with NJC's recommendation.

It has nothing to do with tribe.
