The Senate has on Wednesday morning, confirmed receipt of a letter from the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, requesting the immediate confirmation of this 3 crucial appointments in the absence of Buhari which has raised so many eyebrows on what might happen next:
1. the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, as the substantive CJN.
Recall, that for three months, President Muhammadu Buhari, failed to forward the name of Justice Onnoghen, thereby raising controversies in the polity.
Confirming the receipt of the letter, the senate said: “The Senate President is in receipt of the letter from the acting president, but it will be left to Senator Saraki to reconvene plenary to start the screening process.
“But even if he does so, the presidency should not expect us to rubber stamp Justice Onnoghen’s nomination, as we would have to carry out our own background checks, investigation and screening before deciding whether to confirm him or not.’’
That is not all, you need to see the 2nd and 3rd appointments, that will leave you amazed.
