CJN, NJC yet to receive Justice Salami’s letter declining appointment

A former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen and the National Judicial Council (NJC) are yet to be formally informed of Justice Ayo Salami’s rejection of his appointment as the Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Cases Trial Monitoring Committee recently set up by the NJC.

Spokesman to the CJN, Awassam Bassey and a senior official of the NJC told our reporter Thursday that a formal letter from Justice Salami on the issue has not been received.

They said the information about Justice Salami’s purported rejection of his appointment still remain in the realm of rumour.
Bassey, in a text message, said: “I refer to the issue you raised this morning and I can confirm that it is true; I mean the resignation of Hon. Mr. Justice Ayo Salami (Retired).

“Besides what we see in the media, we cannot exactly say what Justice Salami’s reasons are for declining to undertake this all-important national assignment that he was called upon to perform.

“His Lordship the Honourable Chief Justice of Nigeria awaits Hon Salami’s letter of resignation. That is all I can say at this moment.

“A more detailed response will be communicated to you when we receive Hon. Mr. Justice Salami’s letter,” Bassey said.

The Nation learnt yesterday that the NJC would take a position on the issue today, following which a formal statement could be issued for public consumption.
