President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn in Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, from Bauchi state, as the new CJN.
This is coming following the suspension of Walter Onnoghen as chief justice of Nigeria (CJN).
Mohammed is the next to Onnoghen in the order of seniority.
Buhari said the suspension was based on the order of Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on January 23, 2019.
Mohammed was sworn in inside the council chamber of the presidential villa in Abuja.
Mohammed was driven into the forecourt of the president’s office in a black Mercedes Benz C240 with number plate GWA 900FA at 4:30pm.
