Despite series of protests and controversy generated by his ascendency to the office of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (in acting capacity) Justice Tanko Muhammed, Monday, presided over a five-man panel at the resumed sitting of the Supreme Court.
Monday is the first working day after the last Friday’s suspension of the former CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Justice Muhammad was immediately sworn in by President Buhari, in the stead of Onnoghen, on Friday.
Others sitting alongside Justice Muhammad on the panel at the Monday’s sitting are Justices Mary Peter-Odili, Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, Amiru Sanusi and Paul Galinje.
There are 10 cases listed for hearing on the Supreme Court’s Monday’s cause list published on the court’s website.
