Ibrahim Muhammad, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), has postponed the swearing-in of 18 newly appointed justices of the appeal court.

President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the appointment of 18 new justices following a recommendation by the National Judicial Council (NJC).

Muhammad had fixed Thursday, April 29, to swear in the justices. However, the inauguration ceremony has been postponed indefinitely.

Although no reason was given for the postponement, Ahuraka Isah, senior special assistant on media to the CJN, said on Wednesday that one of the influencing factors was the ongoing strike by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Isah said another reason is to enable the new judges “clear their desks in their various offices”, to ensure that there are no outstanding issues before they assume their new responsibilities.

The judges are:

Bature Isah Gafai
Muhammad Ibrahim Sirajo
Waziri Abdul-Azeez
Yusuf Alhaji Bashir
Usman A. Musale
Jauro Ibrahim Wakili
Abba Bello Mohammed
Mohammed Danjuma
Danlami Zama Senchi
Mohammed Lawal Abubakar
Hassan Muslim Sule
Amadi Kenneth Ikechukwu
Peter Oyinkenimiemi Affen
Sybil Onyeji Nwaka Gbagi
Olasumbo Olanrewaju Goodluck
Banjoko Adebukunola Adeoti Ibironke
Olabode Abimbola Adegbehingbe
Bola Samuel Ademola
