The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad has resigned from his position.

Muhammad resigned on Sunday night on ground of ill-health.

According to information reaching us, arrangements are ongoing to swear in the next most senior justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, as the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Recall, Justices of the Supreme Court last week unanimously petitioned CJN to the National Judicial Council, (NJC) against the CJN. 

In the unprecedented petition, the Judges accused him of high-handedness, mistreatment of the Judges and misappropriation funds. They equally demanded for his resignation.
