“Termites Ate My School Certificate” –CJN Tanko

From Richard Adejare, Abuja

Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, Chief Justice of Nigeria, said termites destroyed his primary school certificate when his home in Bauchi was invaded in 1998 and devoured all documents inside beyond recovery News Hub Mag! reports.

In an affidavit which the CJN submitted to the Senate last week to be confirmed as the head of the Supreme Court said “No portion of the certificate was salvaged,”.

The specific affidavit has been circulating on social media for some days now. Muhammad swore the affidavit on February 13, 2002, while he was a judge at the Jos Division of the Court of Appeal. He became a Supreme Court judge in 2007.

The CJN who was sworn-in by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja, told those making corruption allegation not to bring hollow allegation that they would not be able to substantiate when called upon.

Justice Tanko Mohammed was first sworn-in on January 25 this year as the acting CJN when President Buhari suspended the immediate past CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

He became the 18th CJN at the brief ceremony.

Mohammed, who took over from the immediate past and retired CJN, Walter Onnoghen, was screened and cleared by the Senate last week.

News Hub Mag! recalls that he has been on acting capacity since January, 2019.
