Supreme Court justices : President Buhari sued over delay in appointment

In line with the delay in the appointment of Supreme Court Justices, a Lawyer identified as Lawrence Nnoli has sued President Buhari.

Nnoli affirmed that the failure of the President to appoint more Justices of the Supreme Court was “a serious breach of Section 231(2) of the 1999 Constitution and poses a grave danger to the course of justice in Nigeria”.

In the lawsuit, he asked the court to compel President Buhari to perform his duties as it “poses a grave risk to the peace and progress of Nigeria as citizens’ confidence in the supreme court towards dispensing justice in a timely manner may be eroded owing to the insufficient number of Justices of the supreme court available."
