You Acted Against The Constitution – Court Faults Buhari On Appointment Of Judges (Updated: 2 years ago)


Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been slammed by a federal high court judge for acting against the constitution.

A Federal High Court in Abuja has reprimanded President Muhammadu Buhari for acting against the constitution by forwarding the names of 11 lawyers nominated for appointment as judges of the High Court of The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to the Senate for screening and confirmation.

According to TheNation, in a judgment on Wednesday, Justice Inyang Ekwo held that President Buhari acted in contravention of the provision of Section 256(2) of the Constitution when he forwarded the recommended names, sent to him by the National Judicial Council (NJC), to the Senate.

Justice Ekwo said the only instance where the President can forward NJC’s recommendation to the Senate, in respect of a High Court judge’s appointment, is when it relates to the appointment of a head of court, like the Chief Judge.

 

The judge however held that the fact that President Buhari contravened the provision of Section 256(2) of the Constitution did not affect that swearing-in of the judges.
