Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) says the Supreme Court has so far delivered 272 judgments in the 2022/2023 Legal Year.
He disclosed this in a goodwill message to Nigerians celebrating Easter and participating in the Ramadan fast.
Ariwoola counselled both Christians and Muslims to use the two occasions to pray fervently for peace and tranquillity to continue to prevail in the country.
In his words, “It is with gratitude to Almighty Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful, the most benevolent for His grace at this season when both Christians and Muslims all over the globe are fasting and calling on Almighty God for protection and blessings that I express my greetings to all.
“I am using this opportunity to thank my brother Justices of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and our supporting staff for their unalloyed cooperation since the beginning of the current legal year of 2022/2023 which started in mid-September, 2022.
“I want to specifically appreciate and acknowledge my brother Justices who have delivered 272 judgments in the normal civil, criminal, and election-related Appeals under immense pressure.
“We appreciate, adore, and give glory to Almighty God who has continued to keep us all in good health.
“I wish the Christian faithful a joyous Easter and the Muslim Ummah a rewarding Ramadan and happy Eid- el- Fitr”
The Supreme Court is on Easter and Eid-el- Fitr vacation and would resume later this month.
