Buhari appoints new s’court justice, seeks senate confirmation

Buhari has asked the senate to confirm Musa Abaji as a justice of the supreme court.

Buhari’s request was read on the floor of the upper legislative chamber by Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday.

“In line with 1999 constitution upon the advice of the national judicial council, I hereby refer for confirmation the appointment of Justice Musa Abaji as the justice of the supreme court of Nigeria,” the letter read.

“While hoping that this is expeditiously considered by the senate, accept the assurances of my highest regard.”

In another letter, Buhari conveyed his decision to decline assent to the Institute of Chartered Biochemist and Molecular Biology of Nigeria bill 2018.

“Presidential decision to decline assent to the Institute of Chartered Biochemist and Molecular Biology of Nigeria bill 2018,” it read.

“Pursuant of section 68 (4) of the constitution, I hereby convey to the senate the decision on the 5th November 2018 to decline presidential assent to the Institute of Chartered Biochemist and Molecular Biology of Nigeria bill 2018 recently passed by the national assembly for the following reasons

“The provisions of section 13 (3) to give the chartered biochemist and molecular biology power to approve academic program and even close down programs in tertiary institutions will infringe on our mandate of the national university commission and the national board for technology education

“There are certain drafting and administrative issues in the bill, including the failure in section 13 (8), 14 and 22 (2) to designate a chairman for both the practice and publicity committee and or specific process for how a chairman should emerge for either of the education, practice and publicity committees. This can lead to confusion in the administration of the council.”
