The Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria [CJN], Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen has arrived National Assembly for confirmation.
Justice Onnoghen arrived the National Assembly in an entourage of seven cars and two Coaster buses.
The Senate had, on February 28th, fixed March 1 to conduct the screening and confirmation of Justice Onnoghen as CJN.
Onnoghen’s confirmation is coming after several criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government for failure to forward his name for confirmation.
Onnoghen was rather consigned to the role of Acting CJN by Buhari and was about to be retained in such capacity until the sick president went for sick leave to the United Kingdom.
Justice Onnoghen’s name was, thereafter, forwarded by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for confirmation as the substantial Chief Justice of the Federation.
