Breaking: Acting CJN swears in 250 members of the General Election Tribunals

The Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, has sworn in 250 members of the general election tribunals.

At the swearing-in ceremony which took place in Abuja on Saturday, the acting CJN urged the members of the election tribunals to discharge their duties with integrity, as well as the fear of God.

The development comes barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and swore-in Mohammed as acting CJN.

According to the president, the suspension was based on the request of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, pending the completion of Onnoghen’s trial

Onnoghen is being tried over allegations of failing to declare his assets.
