At the swearing-in ceremony which took place in Abuja on Saturday 26th of January, 2019, the acting CJN urged the members of the election tribunals to discharge their duties with integrity, as well as the fear of God.

The development comes barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and swore-in Mohammed as acting CJN.

According to the president, the suspension was based on the request of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, pending the completion of Onnoghen’s trial.
