Senate Confirms Justice Dongban-Mensem As Appeal Court President

The Nigerian senate today confirms Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem as the President of appeal court.

Her confirmation is coming days after some Nigerians accused President Buhari of delaying her confirmation for ethnoreligious reasons, despite the recommendation of the National Judicial Council. President Buhari however defended himself by saying that security agencies were yet to conclude their background checks on her.

Before being confirmed on Thursday June 11, Gabriel Suswam (PDP, Benue) who was a member of the committee that screened Ms Dongban-Mensem said “she is very experienced and qualified for the job and there is is no argument as to her qualifications.”

James Jiya John Kolo was also confirmed as a commissioner of the Federal Character Commission to represent Nasarawa State
