Buhari: I will always abide by judiciary’s decisions
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he respects the Judiciary and is willing to abide by its decisions at all times.
Mr. Buhari made the statement at an Iftar dinner with representatives of the judiciary at his official residence.
Buhari said he believed that the judiciary should be independent, recalling how, without any fuss, he submitted himself to courts orders three times before he became the president.
Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement, said the President also praised the capabilities of Nigerian judges, saying that “your training and experience has earned you respect”.
In his remarks, the Acting Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Ibrahim Tanko, who led retired chief justices, some justices of the Supreme Court and heads of courts in the FCT, expressed appreciation to the president for breaking the Ramadan fast with him.
