CJN seeks legal backing for review of judges’ emoluments as Senate strengthens emergency line


Justice Muhammed Tanko

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has urged the National Assembly to alter the 1999 Constitution to mandate the National Judicial Council (NJC) to fix and review emoluments of judges every four years.

In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Ahuraka Yusuf Isah, the CJN made the appeal in a 17-page paper titled, “Input by the Judiciary to the Proposed Alteration to the 1999 Constitution (as Amended)”, presented as recommendations of the judiciary on the occasion of the national public hearing by the Senate Committee on review of the 1999 Constitution in Abuja.

BESIDES, the upper legislative chamber, yesterday, took fresh steps towards strengthening the nation’s emergency line, 112, being implemented by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) through its Emergency Communication Centres (ECCs).

The Senate Committee on Communications had organised a one-day public hearing, where stakeholders gathered to make contributions and observations on two bills.
