PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has sent a request to the House of Senate to confirm the nomination of Hon. Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.
The request was contained in a letter dated 25th July 2022, and read by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, at the start of the plenary on Tuesday at the National Assembly.
“According to Section 231(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), I forward for confirmation by the Senate, the appointment of Hon. Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.” the letter read.
“While I hope that the submission will be considered in the usual expeditious manner, please accept, Distinguished Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration.”
President Buhari appointed Justice Ariwoola as the CJN as a result of the resignation of former Chief Justice Muhammad Tanko on 27th June 2022.
Buhari also forwarded the names of five nominees to the Senate for confirmation of appointment as non-executive directors of the board of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
He also sent to the Senate a list of 19 nominees for confirmation as Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Five of the REC nominees are for renewal of appointments while 14 are for fresh appointments.
