The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Olukayode Ariwoola says he will not condone any act of recklessness or abuse of power and public trust from judicial officers.
Ariwoola said this at the swearing-in of members of the 2023 Election Petition Tribunals on Monday in Abuja.
According to the CJN, “there is virtually nothing that has not been seen or heard before, but you should be ready to see and hear more, especially as you begin to adjudicate on election matters in 2023.
He noted that trust is a burden but judicial officers must discharge it with utmost sincerity, honesty and transparency because conscience is an open wound healed only by the truth.
He warned them that all eyes are on them and that they should therefore always remember that their conduct will be publicly dissected and thoroughly scrutinised.
