The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, has sworn in eight new Justices of the Supreme Court.

The CJN warned the new Justices not to allow their personal ambition or any extraneous considerations to becloud their sense of judgment in the discharge of their duties.

The new Justices are Mohammed Garba Lawal, Heleen Morenikeji Ogunwumiju,  Abdul Aboki,  Ibrahim Mohammed Musa Saulawa,  Adamu Jauro,  Samuel  Oseji,  Tijani Abubakar and Emmanuel Akomaye Agim.

The CJN told the new Justices that their elevation to Supreme Court was in recognition of their astuteness and passion for hard work and urged them to bring their experiences and dexterity to bear at the apex court.

He further warned that their interactions with people of unenviable inclinations and pedigree must be halted forthwith.

At the Supreme Court level of adjudication, the CJN asked them to let their conscience guide and filter every thought traversing their minds.

The CJN said, “I have no doubt that you may have at one time or the other been confronted with some forms of criticisms or verbal assaults by litigants who have lost cases.

“I want to assure you that more of that will come your ways at the final court in the land where appellants’ expectations are often high and infectious.

“There is no way you can please human beings especially litigants and  I am making it clear that the easiest way to fail in life is to try to please everybody.

“The only deity you can fear is the Almighty God.  Once your judgment is in consonance with what God expects from you and is also in accordance with the constitution, you should consider yourself the happiest and freest person on earth.”

The CJN charged them to ensure that their moral uprightness, integrity and respect for the constitution and other extant laws in operations must be unwavering.
