Just in: Buhari nominates Dongban-Mensem As Appeal Court President

Social sharing

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally forwarded the name of Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem to the Senate for confirmation as Acting President of the Court of Appeal.

This came barely 24 hours after the presidency said Buhari was not a “rubber stamp” and would allow relevant security agencies to clear Dongban-Mensem for the position.

But in a statement on Monday, Buhari’s senior media assistant, Garba Shehu, said the president had sent Dongban-Mensem’s name to the Senate for confirmation.

Shehu said in a tweet: “President Muhammadu Buhari, in-line with his constitutional responsibility has sent the nomination of Her Lordship, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, Acting President, Court of Appeal to the Senate for confirmation as President, Court of Appeal.

“Justice Dongban-Mensem is a serving Justice of the Court of Appeal and was recommended, as is the practice, by the National Judicial Council for the nomination by the President.”
