i) Hon. Justice Bature Isah Gafai
ii) Hon. Justice Muhammad Ibrahim Sirajo
iii) Hon. Justice Waziri Abdul-Azeez
iv) Hon. Justice Yusuf Alhaji Bashir
v) Hon. Justice Usman A. Musale
vi) Hon. Justice Jauro Ibrahim Wakili
vii) Hon. Justice Abba Bello Mohammed
viii) Hon. Grand Kadi Mohammed Danjuma
ix) Hon. Justice Danlami Zama Senchi
x) Hon. Justice Mohammed Lawal Abubakar
xi) Hon. Justice Hassan Muslim Sule
xii) Hon. Justice Amadi Kenneth Ikechukwu

xvii) Hon. Justice Olabode Abimbola Adegbehingbe
xviii) Hon. Justice Bola Samuel Ademola

President Buhari approved the appointments on April 22, 2021.


A Federal High Court sitting in Maitama Abuja, had struck out a case alleging marginalisation of the South-East in the appointment of the said judges.

Presiding judge Inyang Ekwo held on June 25, the incorporated trustees of Alaigbo Development Foundation, which filed the suit, lacked competence to appear before the court (locus standi).

They had alleged that Igbos were shortchanged in the recent appointment with just one slot.

The defendants were the National Judicial Council, Federal Judicial Service Commission, President of the Court of Appeal, Federal Character Commission and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.

The swearing-in was earlier scheduled for April 29 but postponed following the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) strike.

A drama played out when Justice Olasunbo Goodluck, a Christian, took her oath in the name of Allah during the swearing-in.

The CJN corrected her immediately and she took it in the name of God.

Nigeria can never grow with this nepotistic attitude.
The same children that were literally pushed to go to school,couldn't pass jamb but admitted for quota system.
They do not even know the work well.
They are given juicy positions at the expense of people who merit it based on performance.

That 1 SE slot should have been given to the SW. The SW deserves 5 not 4..

South East people are not interested in Nigeria.

The Court of Appeal in Nigeria is constitutionally required to have at least 3 Judges each who are versed in Customary Law & Islamic Law.

It is carved out as English Law, Customary Law & Sharia.

The likes of Uche Onyemenam from Ebonyi State came in from the Customary Court of Appeal to the Appeal Court on 30/11/2010.

The present CJN went to the Court of Appeal through this route as well.

Look forward to more cases of Fullanus herdsmen getting easy acquittals once their matters go on appeal. Southerners should wake up from their sleepwalking before its too late.
