Justice Oluwakayode Ariwoola, Acting Justice of Nigeria and chairman of the National Judicial Council (NJC), will soon launch a new reform called the sweeping reform.
The new reform is expected to reposition the Judiciary, is reportedly billed for the resumption of the new legal year in September. It is not known if the top jurist would be announcing the reform package during the traditional ceremony that heralds every new legal year.
It was also learnt that Justices of the Supreme Court have also been broken into committees to superintend an ongoing internal reform in the apex court.
The committees are headed by the senior justices of the court. Each committee has four members, making a total of three committees for the 12 Justices of the court.
The CJN was said to have recused himself from direct participation in the internal cleansing exercise to give his colleagues unfettered access to all the activities of the court.
Senior administrative officers of the court have also been reportedly directed by the CJN to open all financial books of the court to the Justices.
