The CJN made the call at the swearing-in of the newly appointed judges at the Supreme Court complex.

“The oath of office is an exercise required of all judicial officers to wake up to the reality of the new status they now acquire.

“There is nothing we have not seen or heard of, before, but you should be ready to see and hear more, especially as we approach election season in 2023.

“This indicates that things can never remain static as your lifestyle has automatically changed and your acquaintances, too, have to be carefully chosen so as to align with the current realities of life,” he added.

He said although judicial officers are not known to possess some supernatural powers to perform wonders, the society within which they operate may demand the impossible from you as Judges.

“Even though I rejoice with you on this very important appointment, I still sympathise with you for the many troubles, inconveniences, verbal assaults and all sorts of uncomplimentary remarks that may be made about you by various litigants in the course of your adjudication, especially if your conscience is not controlling your conduct.

“We are all humans, no doubt, but you must display the humanism in you by doing those extraordinary things that people would say you cannot do”.

The CJN warned the new judges that appointment to the bench is not an appointment to affluence, influence or unholy alliance with people of questionable character that may appear before them in different guises and make them do what is offensive to the law.

He urged them to shun unmerited wealth, vainglory, dishonest disposition and ostentatious lifestyle borne out of corrupt acquaintances.

“The National Judicial Council (NJC) will never rest on its oars in fishing out the bad eggs within the judiciary at all times.

“You can only run but certainly won’t have the capacity to hide from the long arm of our disciplinary apparatus.

“Never you engage in any acts that may make you regret ever being a judicial officer.

The judges of the Federal High Court are Bala Usman, Emmanuel Gakko, Aminu Garba, Musa Sulaiman Liman, Ahmad Gama Mahmud, and Segun-Bello Mabel and Joseph Aina for the FCT High Court.

Popular comedian, Bovi Ugboma has stated that there should be no competition amongst skit makers and stand up comedians.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said the two professions are similar yet different so they should collaborate instead of seeing themselves as competitors.

When asked if the rise of online skit makers have affected stand up comedians, he said, “Why should it affect them? They are two different crafts. We should learn to be more collaborative instead of competitive.

“Anytime I get that question, I get worried because what they do is online, and there is a market for it. What we do is offline and there is a market for it as well.

“They have a different genre, so we should encourage them and the fact that they can make money out of it. The fact that it is now a booming business is a plus to the entertainment industry.”

Bovi talked about what makes his crafts unique. He said, “I just do me and I make sure I always challenge and reinvent myself. I also constantly evolve so people would not get bored.
