The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad has promised that the Supreme Court of Nigeria is ever ready to ensure effective and efficient justice delivery at all times.

The CJN stated this while receiving members of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC).

PACAC members led by their chairman, Professor Itse Sagay, SAN visited the CJN at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, October 10, hours after visiting President Muhammadu Buhari.

The CJN revealed that justices of the apex court always put in the effort by doing a critical review of all facts and evidence before giving a verdict.

He said: “We are all seasoned judicial officers that were appointed to the Supreme Court based on merit, experience, and qualification.

“We are bound by the oath we have subscribed to and thus discharge our responsibilities without deference to anybody and we will continue to do so.

“Our judgments are always all-encompassing and must, at all times, reflect the feelings and views of every justice on the panel. Dissenting judgments are always encouraged because we cannot all see things from the same perspective.”

Meanwhile, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has said the commission is not selective in its fight against corruption in the country.

According to Magu, the majority of the people accusing the commission of being selective in the fight against corruption were the most corrupt individuals in the country.
