 Justice Olukayode Ariwoola is expected to be sworn in today by President Muhammadu Buhari as the new Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) following the resignation of Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad.

www.bigpenngr.com reports that although Justice Tanko Muhammad had cited health ground for his resignation, multiple sources said his resignation is far unconnected to crisis between him and some of his colleagues at the apex court.

Report say only last week, 14 justices of the Supreme Court had written him a letter to lament the decrepit state of affairs in the apex court.

Justice Ariwoola is the most senior Justice of the Supreme Court next in line to Tanko Muhammad.
