Buhari selects new Supreme Court Judges

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked for the Senate to consider and affirm the designations of two judges as Justices of the Supreme Court. The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read the letter passing on the demand after the Senate came back from shut entryway session on Tuesday.

The named judges are Sidi Bage, Nasarawa State, North Focal; and Paul Jauro, Taraba State, North East. In the letter read by Saraki, Buhari said his demand took after Segment 231(2) of the Constitution of Nigeria, as revised.

The President looked for speedy consideration of the Senate, Mr. Saraki read. Jauro, who was conceived on June 26, 1954, got to be judge of the High Court in 1998. Ten years subsequently, he was selected Justice of the Court of Appeal.

Bage, conceived on June 22, 1956, got to be Government High Court Judge in 1992 preceding Justice of the Court of Appeal in 2000.
The two Judges had been suggested for arrangement as Judges of the Supreme Court by the National Judicial Council.

Their assignments came in the midst of a clampdown on professedly degenerate judges in the High, Appeal and the Supreme Courts, by the State Security Service.
Of the 15 said to be under scrutiny, seven were captured weekend.

They were allowed bail on Monday on self-recognizance.
