The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has been alleged to be junketing abroad for workshops with his wife, children, and backroom staff while blocking other justices of the Supreme Court from overseas training.
In a protest memo sent to the CJN by the angry Supreme Court judges, the justices demanded to know what had happened to their legitimate entitlements under Tanko.
The justices of the apex court in Nigeria said their annual foreign training, meant to enhance capacity building for the country’s judicial process, had been blocked by Tanko.
The justices added, “Your Lordship totally ignored this demand and yet traveled with your spouse, children, and personal staff. We demand to know what has become our training funds, have they been diverted, or it’s plain denial.”
While demanding to know what had happened to their entitlement, they complained that their welfare under the leadership of Tanko was appalling.
