Buhari Asks Senate To Confirm Tanko Mohammad As CJN by Tolexander: 12:19pm On Jul 11
President Muhammadu Buhari has forwarded the name of the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad to the Senate for approval as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

The Presidents request was sent in a letter to the Senate on Thursday.

A second letter was also sent by President Muhammdu Buhari, seeking the approval for the appointment of 15 special advisers.

Buhari’s request comes a day after the National Judicial Council (NJC) rose from an Emergency Meeting to recommend to the President, the appointment of Hon. Dr. Justice Tanko Muhammad, as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

The NJC also on Wednesday recommended eight other persons as Heads of Court.

Following a meeting which was initially presided over by Hon. Mr. Justice Umaru Abdullahi, CON, the NJC said it considered and approved the recommendation of its Interview Committee that screened the two candidates presented by the Federal Judicial Service Commission to it for appointment as Chief Justice of Nigeria

Now the man has total control of the Executive, the Legislature and Judiciary.
I hope that now that he has only the people he wants in all arms of Govt he wont blame 16 years of PDP for poor performance .

That's the game plan right from the onset 'to remove Ononghen in the name of corruption and put Tanko Mohammed as the CJN and when another party comes in that one too will remove current CJN and install his own too and the cycle continues, now tell me HOW CAN THE JUDICIARY BE AUTONOMOUS?
Enough of all this let our institutions operate in an autonomous environment and atmosphere that's when our democracy can thrive cool

I don't think many journalists will make it to heaven. Infact, if there will be a world war III journalists will be the cause.

The kind of first impression that the topic plants in one's mind is enough to tear a nation.

Who wrote the Nigerian Constitution?

How can a president appoint CJ, a supposed independent body? How can a president appoint INEC chairman, another supposedly independent body?

How do you expect the people heading this independent bodies to perform their duties without interference from the executive?

500 million years this country no go better, problems just too much.

They need to rewrite the constitution and decentralise the system, the president is just too powerful, which is not supposed to be so.

He shouldn't have control over independent bodies.

They should choose their own leaders

Yes oo. We don't have to be enemies. We'll even give them Abuja but you and I are the problem. Igbos and Yorubas fighting themselves. South fighting south. The south can survive if only we join heads.

Buhari doesn't waste time on issues
concerning Cows/Fulani/North

I remember when it was time for Onoghen's confirmation, the dullard
turned deaf ears until Falana, activists, NBA, civil societies etc started protesting

This man is the worst President Nigeria has ever had
