The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, on Monday administered swore in eleven new Federal Capital Territory High Court judges at the headquarters of the Supreme Court.

Mr Tanko went ahead with the programme in spite of criticisms trailing the appointment of the judges, especially from the South-East region which had no candidates. Influential figures from the South-East had condemned the appointments pointing out that the region was completely excluded.

The registered trustees of the Social Justice and Civil Rights Awareness Initiative, had earlier sued the Federal Government at a Federal High Court in Abuja, over the appointment of judges for the High Court of the FCT.

The group, in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/ CS/ 830/2020, had prayed the Court to compel President Muhammadu Buhari to include at least one person from the South-east into the list of newly appointed judges of the FCT High Court.
