UPDATED: Buhari names Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf Abuja High Court Chief Judge

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Senate to confirm the nomination of Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf for appointment as the Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court.

Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege read President Buhari’s letter on the floor at plenary.

Buhari on August 14, 2021 named Justice Baba-Yusuf as the Acting Chief Judge of the FCT.

The President, in his letter, explained that the request for the confirmation of Baba Yusuf as Chief Judge of the FCT High Court was in accordance with the provision of Section 256(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigerian 1999 (as amended).

Meanwhile, two bills to amend the River Basin Development Authorities Act 2004, and establish the Federal College of Education, Idare, Ondo State, have scaled second reading in the Senate.

Both bills were sponsored by Senators Ike Ekweremadu (Enugu West) and Ayo Akinyelure (Ondo Central).

The bills after consideration were referred to the Committees on Water Resources and Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, respectively, for further legislative work.

Both Committees chaired by Senators Bello Mandiya and Ahmad Baba-Kaita were given four weeks to report back to the Upper Chamber.
