The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Honourable Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad has challenged Judges and lawyers to go on individual self-cleansing and do everything possible to rid the law profession of bad eggs.
According to him, Judges cannot take the lead with the issuance of reckless ex-parte orders while lawyers too cannot take the lead with the filing of frivolous suits and forum shopping.
The CJN issued the challenge on Baba Yusuf as the substantive Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory judiciary.
The ceremony, which took place at the Supreme Court in Abuja, had in attendance the Governor of Kogi state, Mr Yahaya Bello, the FCT Minister Mohammed Bello, members of the National Assembly, judicial officers from various jurisdictions, and traditional rulers.
Mr Baba-Yusuf was sworn in following the resignation of his predecessor, Salisu Garba who resigned to take up an appointment as the Administrator of the National Judicial Institute (NJI).
On August 16, 2021, he was sworn in as the acting chief judge of the FCT High Court.
