Three judges to face disciplinary action over granting of conflicting exparte order
Three Judges are to appear before the National Judicial Council, NJC, for disciplinary action over granting of conflicting exparte orders.
In a statement, the Director of Information of the NJC, Mr. Soji Oye, hints that the Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad, has expressed his determination to set an example with the three judges.
According to the statement, the CJN directs the state Chief Judges to henceforth take absolute charge of assigning cases, especially political matters, personally.
Justice Muhammad also warned the Chief Judges to stop making newly appointed Judicial Officers vacation Judges, or assigning complex cases to inexperienced Judges.
The CJN advised all Heads of Court to be conversant with the development in the polity and the Judgments delivered by courts of various jurisdictions.
Justice Muhammad said the Judiciary would no longer condone indiscipline or allow any Judge to tarnish the image of the Judiciary.
