Buhari Appoints New Judges For Supreme Court

President Muhammdu Buhari on Friday, August 14, elevated four judges from the north to the Supreme Court.

The judges are Justice Mohammed Garba (northwest), Justice Tijjani Abubakar (northeast), Justice Abdu Aboki (northwest) and Mohammed M. Saulawa (northwest).

Justice Garba was the chairman of the 2019 presidential election petition tribunal which upheld President Buhari’s second term election. He was elevated from the appeal court.

According to The Nation, the four judges were promoted following the recommendation of the Nigerian Judiciary Council (NJC) after its meeting on Tuesday, August 11, and Wednesday 12.

NJC also recommended 18 other judges to the president for appointment to other courts. They are Justice Gumna Kashim Kaigama (who was recommended as Yobe state chief judge), Kadi Muhammed Abubakar (recommended for appointment as Grand Kadi of Sharia Court of Appeal, Katsina state).

Others are Justice Mathew Emeka Njoku who was recommended as the president of the customary court of appeal in Imo state.

Jamilu Shehu Suleiman, Maryam Ahmen Sabo, Sanusi Ado Ma’aji, Abdu Maiwada Abubakar, Zuwaira Yusuf and Hafsat Yahaya Sani have been recommended as judges of the high court of Kano state.
