The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the appointment of Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.
At the resumption of plenary on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Ibrahim Gobir, moved two motions for the upper chamber to screen Ariwoola.
His motions were approved by the legislators when they were put to a voice vote by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Lawan called for the screening exercise to be moved forward from where it was listed on the order paper.
Subsequently, Ariwoola and all Supreme Court judges, President of the Court of Appeal, President of the Federal High Court, President of the National Industrial Court and Secretary of the National Judicial Council walked into the chambers and took their seats.
The Senate thereafter asked Ariwoola to take a bow and leave.

Lawyer, Ejimakor Threatens DSS Over Refusal To Release Nnamdi Kanu
Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, has threatened the Department of State Services, DSS, over failure to comply with a court ruling ordering his client’s release.
Ejimakor warned that failure to release Kanu would trigger prompt judicial measures against DSS.
The Special Counsel disclosed this while noting that he had served the DSS a final administrative demand for Kanu’s release.
In a tweet, Ejimakor wrote: “Yesterday, I served on the DSS a final ‘administrative’ demand to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in line with the 26th October Judgment of the Federal High Court (Umuahia). Failure to comply will trigger prompt ‘judicial’ measures to enforce compliance.”
Kanu had been locked up by the DSS since he was arrested in June 2021 in Kenya and subjected to extraordinary rendition.
The IPOB leader was picked following his agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
Following his arrest and arraignment, the Court of Appeal in Abuja granted Kanu bail, but the Nigerian government refused to release him.
A Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, also declared the IPOB leader’s rearrest in Kenya unconstitutional and illegal.
