The Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammed is presently being screened by the Senate.

He will be the first presidential nominee to be screened by the Committee of the whole of the 9th Senate.

A few minutes of closed door session was held before the CJN was admitted into the chambers.

He is responding to questions from the lawmakers on his vision for the judiciary and delay in Nigeria’s criminal justice system.

The Chief of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammed has been in acting capacity since January when his predecessor, Walter Onnoghen was controversially suspended over allegations of false declaration of asset.
