…Warns against conflicting judgements

By Kay Abdoulaye

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, on Wednesday, swore in 22 Justices for the Court of Appeal.

Speaking at the event which took place at the Main Courtroom of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in Abuja, the CJN also disclosed that the National Judicial Council (NJC) has activated the process of making errant judges, who give misleading and conflicting judgements, be made to face the consequence of their “despicable and odious conduct”.

He described such conduct as an embarrassment to the judiciary and would not be taken lightly.

He urged the new Justices to be upright, not to falter and toe the path of infamy, but must adjudicate according to the constitution.

The new Appeal Court Justices were sworn in alongside 11 new Judges of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Part of those sworn in were; Wife of the FCT Minister, Eberechi Wike; and Justice Donatus Okorowo of the Federal High Court, Abuja, among other judges.

Others are; Ruqayat Oremei Ayoola from Kogi State; Polycarp Terna Kwahar from Benue State; Fadawa Umaru from Borno State; Oyewumi Oyejoju Oyebiola from Oyo State; Ntong Festus Ntong from Akwa Ibom State; Nehizena Idemudia Afolabi from Edo State; and Nnamdi Okwy Dimgba from Abia State.
