By Ikenga Chronicles February 8, 2017

According to the Presidency, the name of Hon. Justice W.S. Onnoghen has been forwarded to the Senate for confirmation as the next Chief Justice of Nigeria.

There had been speculations that Onnoghen will not be confirmed as the Chief Justice of Nigeria with the 30-days duration of his acting CJN capacity coming to an end in two days. Many had said that Onnoghen would not be confirmed as President Buhari had plans of installing a Northerner as the CJN. This has however been put to rest following the recent action by the Presidency.

Hon. Justice W.S. Nkanu Onnoghen was born on the 22nd December, 1950 at Okurike Town, Biase L.G.A. of Cross Rivers State. He attended the Presbyterian Primary School, Okurike Town between 1959 and 1965. He later proceeded to Accra, Ghana to attend Odorgorno Secondary School, Adabraka, Accra, Ghana between 1967 and 1972 for his West African Examination Council (WAEC) Exams.

Hon. Justice Onnoghen has been a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria (JSC) since 2005
