Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has cautioned Chief Judge (CJ) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi, against abuse of power.

Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has cautioned Chief Judge (CJ) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi, against abuse of power.

He gave the charge yesterday during Abdullahi’s official inauguration as substantive CJ.
