- President Muhammadu Buhari's recent call for the creation of special crimes courts has not gone down well with some people in the country
- One of those who have reacted to the proposal by President Buhari is former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani
- The senator said that the president should ensure that court orders are obeyed, instead of trying to create new ones
The outspoken senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari's call to the judiciary for the creation of special crimes courts.
Sani who expressed his views on his Twitter page on Tuesday, November 26, advised President Buhari to obey court orders instead of making moves for the establishment of new ones.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, made a new pledge that the judiciary under his watch would strongly uphold the tenets of the constitution as the highest law of the country.
Legit.ng gathered that the CJN, who disclosed this on Monday, September 23, at a special session to mark the beginning of 2019 to 2020 legal year, maintained that his administration would not tolerate the disobedience of binding court orders.
The event also witnessed the swearing-in of 38 distinguished lawyers newly conferred with the honour of Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN).
He, however, said that the rule of law which is the bastion of every democracy across the world would be strictly observed.
“The rule of law must be observed in all our dealings and we must impress it on the governments at all levels to actively toe the path.
"The right of every citizen against any form of oppression and impunity must be jealously guarded and protected with the legal tools at our disposal.
“All binding court orders must be obeyed. Nobody, irrespective of his or her position, will be allowed to toy with court judgments,” he said.
