President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate to request for the screening and subsequent confirmation of Hon. Justice Monica B. Dongban Mensem as the President of Court of Appeal.
President Buhari’s letter was read during plenary by the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan on Tuesday.
The letter read, “Pursuant to Section 238(1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), I write to request for confirmation by the Senate, the appointment of Honourable Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem as the President of the Court of Appeal of Nigeria.
“It is my hope that the Senate will consider and confirm the nominee in the usual expeditious manner.”
Buhari had earlier submitted the nomination of Dongban Mensem as President of the Court of Appeal. The nomination submitted to the Senate was to move her from Acting President.
