Nobody, Living or Dead,👎 Can Influence Supreme Court’s Judgments — Acting CJN

The acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, said on Thursday that no human being, living or dead, could influence the judgments of the Supreme Court.

The Director, Press and Information of the Supreme Court, Dr Festus Akande, quoted the acting CJN as saying this in a statement on Thursday.

Akande had on April 29, 2019 made a similar assertion in a statement debunking a news report which attributed the exit of the former CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, to the influence of President Muhammadu Buhari on the administrative decisions of the Supreme Court and its management.

Akande restated the independence of the Supreme Court and its Justices in a statement quoting the acting CJN as speaking to the management of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria led on a courtesy visit to his office by the corporation’s chairman, Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN), on Thursday.

Justices of the Supreme Court, comprising Justices Olukayode Ariwoola, Kekere-Ekun, Musa Dattijo, Ejembi Eko and Uwani Abba-Aji, were said to have joined the acting CJN in receiving the AMCON management.
