President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate nominating Justice J.T Tsoho as the substantive Chief Judge of the Federal High Court.
In the letter read on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, the president asked the red chambers to confirm the appointment of the acting CJ.
President Buhari also asked the lawmakers to confirm the appointment of Justice Benedict Bakwaph Kanyip as President of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.
After the letter was read, the Senate President Ahmad Lawan referred it to the Committee on Judiciary and Legal Matters.
The committee is expected to report in a week.
This is coming months after Tsoho was sworn in as the acting CJ of the Federal High Court by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad.
