New CJN accuses termites of eating school certificate
The new CJN of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad has revealed that his primary school certificate was destroyed by termites.
According to Premium Times, Mr Muhammad said the termites invaded his home in Bauchi State in 1998 and devoured all documents inside beyond recovery.
“No portion of the certificate was salvaged,” he said. The claim is reportedly contained in an affidavit which he submitted to the Senate last week to be confirmed as the head of the Supreme Court.
It was gathered that the new Supreme court head swore the affidavit on February 13, 2002, while he was a judge at the Jos Division of the Court of Appeal and before he became a Supreme Court judge in 2007.
Justice Tanko Mohammed was sworn-in today as the new Chief Justice of Nigeria by President Buhari, following a senate confirmation.
