Justice Tanko Muhammad, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, has said that the judiciary under his watch will strongly hold on to the tenets of the constitution as the Supreme law of the land.
He said his administration will not tolerate the disobedience of binding court orders.
Mr Muhammad said this on Monday at the special session to mark the beginning of the 2019 to 2020 legal year. The event also witnessed the swearing-in of 38 distinguished lawyers newly conferred with the honour of Senior Advocates of Nigeria.
The Nigerian government has been accused lately of disobeying the courts and choosing the orders it obeys.
Mr Muhammad said the rule of law which is the bastion of every democracy across the world will be strictly observed.
