Barely twelve days to his inauguration as the new president of the United States, Joe Biden has nominated four persons for the Justice Department.
Legit.ng reports that he made this known via his official Twitter page, @JoeBiden, on Thursday, January 7.
Biden stated that the nominees would restore the independence of the department in order to serve the interests of the people and not a presidency.
He said they would rebuild public trust in the rule of law and work to ensure a more fair and equitable justice system.
"Our nominees for the Justice Department will restore the independence of the Department, so it serves the interests of the people—not a presidency. They’ll rebuild public trust in the rule of law and work to ensure a more fair and equitable justice system."
The committee on Biden-Harry presidential transition also noted that nominees would work to move them closer to the American ideal of equal justice under law.
"This team will work to move us closer to the American ideal of equal justice under law. They will work to restore the independence of the Justice Department, always follow facts and the law, and serve and protect the American people with integrity."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Nigeria's former president, Goodluck Jonathan, said nobody's political ambition is worth the blood of any citizen, in any part of the world.
It was reported that the former president's statement follows the invasion of the United States Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump in a bid to stop Joe Biden from being certified as the winner of the November 3 presidential election.
In a related report, Marc Short, the chief of staff to the outgoing vice president, Mike Pence, was banned from entering the White House following the VP's refusal to overturn Joe Biden's win.
Trump was delusional with his claims of victory as the US president is continuing to wield all the state instruments to stop Biden's inauguration.
The US congress met on Wednesday, January 6, to certify the former senator, 78, as the winner of the election but the process was met with an attack as pro-Trump supporters invaded the Capitol to disrupt the democratic process, Sky News reported.
