Cjn Swears In 39 More Judges For Election Petitions

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, yesterday swore in 39 additional judges to preside over the election petition tribunals currently sitting across the federation. The CJN, during the ceremony which took place at the Supreme Court, said the judges were found worthy to be appointed as additional members of tribunals that have been saddled with an “avalanche of petitions” trailing the 2023 general election.

Administering the oath on the newly appointed election petition tribunal judges, the CJN, instructed them to live above board and to submit to the sanctity of the rule of law in the discharge of their judicial functions.
