Buhari urges Senate from London to approve Justice Salisu Abdullahi as Chief Judge of FCT High Court

President Muhammadu Buhari has written the Senate to confirm Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi, who has been in an acting capacity, as the substantive Chief Judge of the High Court of Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The President made the request pursuant to Section 256 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).

In the letter, dated April 1, 2021, President Buhari urged the Senate to do the confirmation, “in the usual expeditious manner.”

This was contained in a statement signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s Spokesman.

It is assumed that President Buhari wrote the letter that Mr. Adesina reported upon from his sick bed in the UK as he notified the nation that he was going on medical trip abroad for two weeks.
