The new Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, had currently performed his first official assignment, swearing in members of the Election Petition Tribunals, for the 2019 general elections.
He came in a little over 2pm, supported only by Justice Duada Sidi Bage.
“The event has just commenced. All other Justices of the Supreme Court are absent. No reasons given yet for their absence.”
Recall, that the event was announced on Friday, by the suspended CJN, Walter Onnoghen, who had planned to perform the swearing in himself.
