He said, “Distinguished colleagues, tomorrow, Wednesday, 21st September 2022, has been fixed for screening and possible confirmation of Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.

“Please, as usual, we all need to be at plenary during the screening exercise.”

Ariwoola was appointed as the acting CJN after Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad resigned as the head of the country’s judiciary in June 2022.

Muhammad resigned after 14 justices of the apex court accused the CJN of corruption and abandoning his responsibilities as the leader of the court.

The letter for confirmation of Justice Ariwoola as Chief Justice of Nigeria was received by the Senate on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, from President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Senate couldn’t consider the request as it adjourned for the annual long recess the following day, Wednesday, July 27, 2022.
