President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday forwarded the names of two Judges of the Court of Appeal (JCA) to the Senate for consideration and confirmation as justices of the Supreme Court Justice. The duo are : Justice Sidi Dauda Bage from Nasarawa (Northcentral) Justice Paul Adamu Galinje from Taraba (Northeast).

The President said in a letter read by the Senate President Bukola Saraki, that “forwarding the names is in conformity with Section 231, sub-Section 2 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, (as amended).”

The section, he said, gives the President power to appoint a Justice of the Supreme Court acting on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council (NJC) and subject to confirmation of the appointment by the Senate.
