A former lawmaker who represented the Kaduna Central Senatorial District from 2015 to 2019, Senator Shehu Sani, has warned that there should be “no jumping the queue” in finding a replacement for the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

This followed reports of the resignation of the CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad, on Monday.

Sani made the statement in a tweet posted to his verified Twitter page, @ShehuSani, on Monday.

He said that the replacement for the CJN should strictly follow laid down rules without any political, sectional, religious or ethnic considerations.

The ex-lawmaker wrote: “The replacement for the CJN should strictly follow the laid down rules. There should be no jumping the queue in order to find a person who will fit into the political, sectional, religious or ethnic peg of the ruling establishment.”

The PUNCH had reported that Justice Tanko Muhammad’s resignation was made public on Monday.
