That is what I will do especially with the cooperation of my brother Justices of the Supreme Court. Born on 22 August 1954, Justice Ariwoola from Oyo state was formerly a Justice of the Court of Appeal before being elevated to the Supreme Court bench in 2011. Senate wades into CJN, Supreme Court Justices’ feud Ariwoola took over from Justice Tanko Muhammad who resigned on health grounds. We shall not fail Nigerian,” he said. On how he would address the controversy in the Supreme Court, the acting CJN said: “There is no controversy in the Supreme Court. Quality journalism costs money. We are one with the Chief Justice. Born on 22 August 1958, Justice Ariwoola from Oyo state was formerly a Justice of the Court of Appeal before being elevated to the Supreme Court bench in 2011.

No controversy we’re one.” Asked about the welfare issues highlighted in the letter addressed to the former CJN, he said: “It was an internal memo of the court. Today, we're asking that you support us to do more. It was not a petition. It was not a letter. It was addressed by the brother Justices of the Chief Justice and presented to him, His Lordship directly.

There were issues to be resolved amongst justices.” Asked if those issues would be resolved under his leadership, he said: “Yeah, we’ve started resolving it.” Earlier, Buhari showered encomium on Muhammad, saying his era witnessed several landmark, jurisprudential and policy decisions by the Supreme Court, and by extension other Courts established by the Constitution. He said: “Ordinarily, he was scheduled to retire from the Supreme Court on the last day of 2023. Unfortunately, as no man is infallible, ill-health has cut short Chief Justice Tanko’s leadership of the Nigerian Judiciary at this time.

“​I am therefore constrained to accept his retirement, albeit with mixed-feelings. Much as one may wish that the Chief Justice of Nigeria Muhammed Tanko is able to fully serve his term in office, it presupposes that he is able to perform the functions of the Office without let, hindrance or any form of disability. “The instant resignation of Justice Tanko is however envisaged under Section 231(4) of the 1999 Constitution as amended which contain provisions relating to vacancy and the occupant of the Office of Chief Justice of Nigeria being unable to perform the functions of the Office for any reason. “​Under a constitutional democracy like ours, government powers and responsibilities are clearly allocated and shared among the three tiers; the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary. The three organs must work harmoniously and optimally in accordance with their respective Constitutional mandates.

“Nigeria’s Judiciary under the leadership of Chief Justice of Nigeria Tanko Muhammed judiciously exercised the Judicial powers of the Federation. “CJN Tanko dealt firmly with the issue of reckless and indiscriminate grant of ex-parte Orders that was assuming serious dimensions.” Dear Reader, Every day, we work hard to provide readers such as you with the most accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information.
