The Senate has confirmed Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
Justice Ariwoola was screened and confirmed after facing the screening hurdles for about one hour on the floor of the Senate.
Apparently satisfied with his performance during the screening exercise, he was unanimously confirmed by senators and Senate President Ahmad Lawan later put the gavel.
The New CJN is expected to be sworn in by President Muhammadu Buhari on a later day.
