Ozekhome Reacts As Dattijo Faults CJN’s Enormous Powers

Recall that retired Justice Dattijo, at a valedictory session organised in his honour last Friday, had said that the CJN wields enormous powers capable of derailing the course of justice.

Dattijo said the CJN is the Chairman of the National Judicial Commission (NJC), which oversees both the appointment and discipline of judges, and he is equally the chair of the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC), the National Judicial Institute (NJI), and the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC) that appoints Senior Advocates of Nigeria.

The former justice stated that there is a need to prune the powers of the CJN, given the oversight functions he exercises on the number of legal institutions across the country.

Justice Dattijo also called for a paradigm shift, noting that such enormous powers “are effortlessly abused”.
