The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Muhammad, has opened up on why he nominated only eight judges for a workshop in London.

Tanko in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Ahuraka Isah, noted that the court nominated only eight people for the workshop so as to allow for smooth operations in the court back in Nigeria.

“Two weeks ago, eight Supreme Court Justices were nominated for a workshop in London as the court cannot take all of them there at once otherwise the job would suffer.”

He stressed that the judges will be leaving in batches as welfare is being provided for those that are yet to get.

He said, “They would be going in batches. Accommodations are being gradually provided for the few that are yet to get. There is none of the Apex Court Justices without SUV and back up cars. If any of them were purchased but refurbished, the external and internal auditors are here in the court to take those that bought them up over it.”

Tanko also addressed a myriad of issues affecting the court.
