Buhari appoints kinsman Salisu Garba as FCT chief judge, Senate to confirm nomination
On Tuesday at plenary, Senate received a request from President Muhammadu Buhari to confirm the appointment of the acting Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Salisu Garba Abdullahi.
Mr Garba hails from Katsina.
Mr Buhari’s request is contained in a letter read by President of Senate Ahmad Lawan.
Mr Buhari, in the letter, said, “Request for the confirmation of the appointment of Hon. Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi as the Chief Judge for the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja.
“Pursuant to Section 256(1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended). I hereby request for the Senate’s confirmation of the appointment of Hon. Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi, the acting Chief Judge of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, as substantive Chief Judge of the Court.
“I trust that the Senate will favourably confirm Hon. Justice Salisu Abdullahi as substantive Chief Judge of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, in the usual expeditious manner.”
The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad, inaugurated Mr Garba as the acting chief judge of the FCT.
He was called to the bar in 1984, and he completed his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in 1985. Mr Garba was appointed as a magistrate of the FCT high court in 1989.
In 1997, he became the chief registrar of the FCT high court and appointed a judge of the FCT high court in 1998.
