“Let me emphasise now that politics is here and election matters will be arising, as judges things should be done to bring down the temperature. We have to be careful so as not to be used as instruments for personal and intraparty squabble,” he said.

”Look at the matter before you, look at the law and use the law to decide. It doesn’t matter who wins or losses, be careful. We should use the law to decide all political matters according to law because judiciary remains the hope of every man whether superman or ordinary man.”

Walter said the judicial officers should see the elevation as a rather greater call for judicial service delivery, NAN reports.

“You should see your promotions not as a holiday but a call for more work.

"You are no longer strangers to the oath of office and oath of allegiance that you have taken.

“You must therefore truly be seen to abide by the Constitution and the Code of Conduct as well as the oaths you have sworn to.

“You are also expected to be guided by judicial precedence. It is when you follow judicial precedence that you would not invite trouble to yourselves,"the CJN said.
