I’m Willing To Abide By Judiciary’s Decisions At All Times – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday reiterated his respect for the country’s judiciary, saying he is willing to abide by its decisions at all times.

Senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, made the statement at a dinner with representatives of the judiciary at his official residence.

Buhari said he believed that the judiciary should be independent, recalling how he submitted himself to the adjudication of the courts three times on his way to becoming president without any fuss.

“I respect the institution. I have come before you three times before I got here on the fourth run for the office. Your word is the last word on any given issue,” he was quoted to have said.

Buhari acknowledged the capability of Nigerian judges, saying: “your training and experience has earned you respect.”

The acting chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Muhammad, who led retired chief justices, some justices of the supreme court and heads of courts in the federal capital territory (FCT), expressed appreciation to the president for breaking the fast with him.

He commended the president for not interfering in the affairs of the Court and promised the judiciary would continue to do its best in safeguarding the country’s judicial system.
