Chief Justice Of Nigeria Reacts To Justices Over Welfare

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Ibrahim Muhammad has officially reacted to the allegations of uncaring attitude levelled against him by his brother Justices in the apex Court.

In his first official reaction made public in Abuja, the CJN admitted that the Supreme Court like any other establishment in the country has been hit by a devastating economic crunch.

As a result of the economic crunch, the CJN said that the leadership of the court under him could no longer meet some of its obligations to Justices, especially in the area of welfare.

He however said that the memo sent to him by the aggrieved Justices notwithstanding, there is no rift between him on one side and Justices of the court on the other side.

The reaction was contained in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Strategy Mr Ahuraka Yusuf.
