The CJN who was sworn-in by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja, told those making corruption allegation not to bring hollow allegation that they would not be able to substantiate when called upon.
Justice Tanko Mohammed was first sworn-in on January 25 this year as the acting CJN when President Buhari suspended the immediate past CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
He became the 18th CJN at the brief ceremony. Mohammed, who took over from the immediate past and retired CJN, Walter Onnoghen, was screened and cleared by the Senate last week. He has been on acting capacity since January, 2019.
Speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the ceremony, Justice Mohammed said that his intention was to make the Nigeria’s judiciary among the best in the world.
