President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn in Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) following the sudden resignation of Justice Ibrahim Tanko on health grounds.
Ariwoola thus becomes the third individual to occupy the top Judiciary job of the country in the life of this administration.
Recall that Justice Walter Onnoghen also became the CJN under President Buhari’s administration before he resigned from office.
Buhari administered the oath of office on Ariwoola at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The acting CJN was accompanied to the ceremony by some Justices of the Supreme Court.
