    This is part of Nigeria’s problem. Your comment.

    Is the northerner under-qualified for the position?

    We need to stop being so divisive. This is ONE Nigeria.

      Thats right a sharia judge just happened to be the preferred choice…
      Have you ever heard of where sharia and democracy where able to exist together without some issues?

      Keep playing devils advocate …

      Oh pls stop it. You and I both know Nigeria is not an Islamic country and the CJN can not push sharia law on us.

      Just admit you deal with issues of tribalism so we can pray for you. And make no mistake I’m neither a Muslim nor a northerner….but why should I hate my brothers and sisters?

      Afterall it is not the northerner who admitted to falsifying his assets declaration.

    Truth be told, as a CJN there should be no room for an iota of rumours of corruption around your name. Also, it is the next most senior person that has been sworn in as acting CJN. Let us stop being emotional and face facts.

      And when Osibanjo swore in the next senior person in DSS after the other one was asked to go what does Buhari do when he returns from his sick leave? Get him out and bring some one from outside the institution to replace him… come on. I cannot imagine i even voted and supported this man.
