The Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, has sworn in 250 members of the general election tribunals.

At the swearing-in ceremony which took place in Abuja on Saturday, the acting CJN urged the members of the election tribunals to discharge their duties with integrity, as well as the fear of God.

The development comes barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and swore-in Mohammed as acting CJN.
