Appointment 12 Judges o FCT High Court: Call for Comment on Suitability of Shortlisted Candidates


Recall that on 28 January 2024, following the request by the Honourable Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) published a Notice calling for expressions of interest from suitably qualified legal practitioners of Bauchi, Bayelsa, Enugu, Imo, Kogi, Kwara, Lagos, Oyo, Plateau. Rivers, Taraba, and Zamfara States origin, for appointment as Judges of the High Court of the FCT.

The Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), as Chairman of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) of the FCT, has through the Secretary of the JSC-FCT, forwarded to the NBA President the shortlist of candidates for appointment, and requesting him to comment on their suitability or otherwise.

Members of the Bar and the general public are, therefore, invited to submit petitions/objections and/or comments generally on the suitability or otherwise of the shortlisted candidates, who are being considered for appointment as Judges of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

All comments/petitions/objections should be put in portable document format (PDF) and forwarded as an attachment to the NBA President through ayodeji.oni@nigerianbar.org.ng or +234 803 345 2825. All communications in this regard should be sent in by close of business on Wednesday, 27 March 2024.

This exercise is aimed at fostering the resolve and commitment of the NBA to strengthen our Judiciary by enthroning a painstaking and transparent process which would ensure that only suitably qualified candidates – of appropriate competence, character, and reputation – are appointed to the Bench.

Kindly find attached the list of candidates.

Thank you.

Akorede Habeeb Lawal
National Publicity Secretary, NBA
