Body of Benchers raises peace panel as Supreme Court justices fight CJN The NBA lamented that the situation has not only affected the judicial responsibilities of the Justices but also impacted on the justice administration process.By Abdullateef Salau Wed, 22 Jun 2022 18:32:07 GMT Senate has waded into a disagreement between the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, and justices of the Supreme Court.Police Affairs for further work.by saharareporters, new york Jun 21, 2022 The senator representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Phillip Aduda is now the new Senate Minority Leader.

While calling for the independence and financial autonomy of the judiciary, the NBA also noted that it is important that the judiciary must not only be, but should also be seen as being above board and transparent in the management and allocation of the resources currently available to it.The statement partly read, “The judiciary must entrench the principles of accountability and probity in the manner in which it expends allocated resources.Unmanaged population growth, time bomb – Osinbajo But Justice Muhammad denied the allegations and condemned taking the issues to the public.While the fight for increased budgetary allocations for the Judiciary continues, it is important that the available resources be used for the welfare and wellbeing of our judicial officers, as well as for the improvement of the infrastructure and facilities required by our judges and justices to effectively discharge their duties.The bill sponsored by Senator Emmanuel Orker-Jev (Benue North West), seeks to provide for the establishment of administration of criminal justice monitoring council for effective and efficient administration of justice in Nigeria.“There is a clear need for mechanisms to be put in place to ensure that the judiciary (with the Supreme Court leading the charge) is providing the necessary template to other arms of government on transparent procurement and budgeting.He therefore mandated the Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters led by Senator Opeyemi Bamidele (APC, Ekiti) to wade into the issue.This will reduce the perception in some quarters that the Judiciary is not accountable to anyone and is also not self-regulating.

” Akpata also noted that with the election season, and the humongous war chests that the politicians and political parties are amassing, the only way to insulate and make the judicial officers immune to the “temptations of being corrupted by these politicians is to assure them of decent working conditions and adequate compensation both in and out of service.“Our Standing Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters should get involved and find out what the real issue is so that the National Assembly can help out..” The NBA president also stated that the judges and Justices, on their part, have a duty to ensure that the honour and respect that is accorded the judiciary by the public “is not lost or dwindled, and that the public continues to hold the judiciary in the highest esteem.” Tags:.Quality journalism costs money.
