Following consideration of a report by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, the upper chamber has approved the nomination of Uwani Abba Aji as a justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
Reading the report, chairman of the committee, David Umaru, said the nominee has been screened and satisfied all requirements.
On his part, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, lauded members of the committee for their speedy consideration judging by the fact that the request came from the executive on December 6.
Mr Saraki urged the executive to replicate such expeditious action in handling matters.
He specifically mentioned that the justice which Mrs Abba-Aji would replace had retired since February, but the executive did not send in a request until December.
