JUST IN: Senate to confirm Onnoghen as CJN March 1

Finally, the Nigerian Senate has announced the confirmation hearing of Walter Onnoghen as Chief Justice of the Federation (CJN) for March 1st, 2017.
Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki at the resumption of plenary this week, made the announcement.
Onnoghen was appointed Acting CJN in November 2016. Three months down the line, the controversies surrounding his confirmation continues.
Recall that early February Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo forwarded Onnoghen’s name to the National Assembly for confirmation as substantive CJN. Tomorrow might be the end of the quagmire.
