Olukayode Ariwoola has been confirmed by the Senate as the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN).

Mr Ariwoola became the acting CJN after the resignation of Ibrahim Muhammad.

Mr Muhammad who was the CJN resigned after 14 justices of the Supreme court accused him of abandoning his official duties as the leader of the apex court.

In July, President Muhammadu Buhari had asked the Senate to confirm Ariwoola as the CJN.

“Pursuant to section 231 (1) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended; I forward for confirmation by the Senate of Honourable Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the chief justice of Nigeria,” Buhari had said.

The upper legislative chamber confirmed Ariwoola as CJN on Wednesday after Abdullahi Gobir, senate leader, moved a motion to screen him in the “committee of the whole”.

The CJN was screened and subsequently confirmed through a voice vote.
