Many Supreme Court justices don’t get up to 12 hours of sleep on a daily basis, the chief justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has said.

The CJN made the assertion when he received the Senate committee on judiciary in his Abuja office on Friday, October 11, The Cable reports.

Legit.ng gathers that Muhammad said a lot of cases would suffer if justices were to sleep for 12 hours daily, as recommended by stress managers.

He said: “Believe me, many of us do not sleep for the recommended 12 hours by stress managers.

“We don’t write judgment merely by stating that so, so, so and so cases were filed by this and that, and end it up by saying appeal is hereby dismissed or upheld.

“We have to give reasons, which is the bedrock of judgment writing. If I’m to sleep for 12 hours, a lot of cases will suffer.”

The CJN added that the funds allocated to the judiciary were not enough to cater for the arm of government he leads.

He said: “If you see the amount allocated to the judiciary, it is far less than what is given to some ministries.”
