Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Muhammad, on Friday swore in Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem as the Acting President of the Court of Appeal.

This swearing-in followed Mrs. Dongban-Mensem’s appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari as Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa retired having clocked the statutory retirement age of 70 years as Justice of Appeal Court.

While swearing her in, Mr. Muhammad urged Mrs Dongbon-Mensem to continue to discharge her duties diligently, noting that hard work and discipline earned her the new position.

Hear him: “As a seasoned judicial officer, there is nothing to tell her but just to work very well. She has been doing her job satisfactorily well and it is as a result of this hard work, character, and attitude that enticed the Court of Appeal and the National Judicial Council to uplift her as Acting President Court of Appeal.

“I urge you to continue, with your charisma, both attitude and ability, to carry out all the tasks and assignments you are given to.

“Our expectation will never fall short of this kind of testimony from the public. Please continue to bear that testimony and the sky will be your limit,” Mr Muhammad said.

Mr. Muhammad urged her to carry along her colleagues, pointing out that consultation was important in discharging her duty.

Speaking to journalists after the swearing-in session, Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau expressed confidence in Mrs. Dongban-Mensem’s ability to serve meritoriously.

Mr. Lalong said the appointment was an indication that the judiciary is taking its rightful place.

Mrs. Dongban-Mensem, in 2015, headed a five-man appeal panel that upheld the ruling of the governorship election tribunal in Rivers, which ordered the sacking of Governor Nyesom Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party and a rerun within 90 days.
