The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Mahmud Mohammed, has referred to those calling the judicial officers corrupt as being inconsiderate and ignorant of how the judiciary operates.

Justice Mohammed, who is retiring from the judiciary after 38 years of service, made the observation today in Abuja while speaking at a special valedictory session held in his honour.

According to the CJN, such criticisms are made without due considerations of the law and the system of government in the country.

He said that the judiciary is duty bound to act and would continue to act in accordance with the dictates of the law as it stands and not as its critics would want it to be.

Lending his voice, to the position of the CJN, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Augustine Alegeh, SAN, also condemned in strong terms, the criticism of the Nigerian judiciary.

The NBA President described the act as “a deliberate attempt to disparage the judiciary.”.
