In his contribution before lending support for confirmation, Senate Deputy President Ovie Omo-Agege explained that there was no petition from the public members to the Committee against any of the nominees, saying that the situation made them honorable for confirmation.

The Committee member, Senator Gabriel Suswam, confirmed to the Senate that the nominees were thoroughly screened, stressing that they should be approved without hesitation.

“As a member of the Committee, I rise to support the report that they should be confirmed.

“Mr. President, we screened them, and I want to say that these are men of honour, and I ask that this Senate do approve their nomination without any hesitation. ”

After they were confirmed by the Committee, Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, Senate President, urged the Federal Government to make funds available to the judiciary to discharge their duties accordingly.
