 Presidency sends Onnoghen name to Senate for confirmation as CJN

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday forwarded the name of the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, to the National Assembly for confirmation as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
The news of the nomination was made known by the presidency through its twitter handle @NGRPresident on Wednesday.
It would be recalled that there has been series of agitation from different quarters urging the presidency to forward Onnoghen’s name to the Senate for confirmation following the retirement of Justice Mahmud Mohammed.
Onnoghen was born on December 22, 1950 and has been a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria since 2005.
He graduated from the University of Ghana at Legon, Ghana in 1977 and from the Nigerian Law School in Lagos in 1978.
