Chief Justice Of Nigeria Tanko Mohammad Reportedly Resigns On Health Grounds

Tanko Muhammad, The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), has resigned on health grounds.

The resignation by Mr Muhammad, 68, comes about 18 months ahead of his official retirement in December 2024, when he will clock 70.

Mr Muhammad’s abrupt exit comes at a time when his colleagues on the Supreme Court bench accused him of hampering the operations of the Supreme Court by failing to fund judges’ welfare as well as fueling of generators among others.

A leaked memo by 14 Justices of the Supreme Court protesting Mr Muhammad’s handling of the operations of the court surfaced online last week.

Such letter leaking to the public is unprecedented in the history of Nigerian Supreme Court.

Mr Muhammad is leaving behind the crises enumerated in the letter by the Justices of the Supreme Court.

He is the second CJN in a row to abruptly exit office.

Premium times


  1. The man looks older than 68 sha. Justice Mary Odili who retired from the Supreme court recently after attaining the age of 70 cannot be older than pa Tanko.

  2. He has finish the work that the cabal sent him. Nonsense and Buhari.

  3. CJN that oversaw the the most embarrassing judgement (Ihedioha/Uzodinma) in Nigerian history.

    May Nigeria never get ur likes again!

    1. So 1 judgement that "you" don't agree with negates other achievements?!. You must be perfect!

      Thank GOD man is not GOD...

    2. Interestingly, while I wasn't thrilled at the judgement then, the man (Uzodinma) seems to be doing ok.

      Secondly, we forget that rulings can go either way.

      If you like, shout from now till thy kingdom come, how your lawyer argues your case, using the evidence that is available is what will win the case. (plus small inducement in some instances).

    3. 19:18, which other achievements? The ones his fellow Justices have recently listed out for him? That aside, I'm definitely not the only one in disagreement with that judgement. Even a 3yr old wd see the folly in it.

      19:34, all the evidence they needed was there for the blind to see; if that was actually their problem.

  4. The plot is just starting

  5. Worst judge ever in the history of Nigeria.
