The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, has cautioned the eight new Justices of the Supreme Court not to allow their personal ambitions to becloud their sense of judgment.
Mohammad gave the warning during the swearing in ceremony of the newly appointed justices on Friday.
He advised them to rather see themselves as God’s representative on earth.
He said that there is no way they can please human beings, especially litigants.
The swearing-in, which took place at the headquarters of the Supreme Court, was sequel to the appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari and confirmed by the Senate, on the recommendations of the National Judicial Council (NJC).
