CJN expresses concerns about conflicting, misleading judgments

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, has expressed concerns over what he described as conflicting and misleading judgments from courts of similar authority in the country.

He said the National Judicial Council (NJC) has initiated measures to hold accountable judges responsible for their unacceptable behavior.

After swearing in 22 judges into the Court of Appeal Bench, the CJN criticised what he described as the excessive issuance of frivolous interim orders from various courts, which he believes undermines the integrity of the judicial system.

Justicia Ariwoola said there is the need to take punitive actions against judges involved in such misconduct.

The CJN emphasized the importance of serving the Nigerian people and delivering fair judgments free from bias or ulterior motives.

Justice Ariwoola also administered the oath of office to 12 legal practitioners recently appointed as judges of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court.

He urged the new judicial officers to uphold their oath of office, as he noted the unprecedented increase in litigation due to rising criminal activities and political matters.
