A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Prof Itse Sagay, yesterday urged the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Alooma Muhktar, to rid the judiciary of corrupt judges.
Sagay, who made the call in an interview in Abuja, said doing so would go a long way to restore the integrity of the judiciary.
He said that Nigeria could not move forward until the common man believed in the integrity of the judiciary.
Sagay also called on the CJN to ensure that all judges found guilty of corrupt practices were punished accordingly to serve as deterrence to others. The senior advocate advised the judiciary to ensure that court judgments were subjected to verification to ensure that they were devoid of any form of corruption.
Sagay also called on the CJN to tow the path of her predecessor, Justice Dahiru Musdapher, who he said, implemented certain policies aimed at redeeming the integrity of the legal profession in spite of his short stay in office. (NAN)
