Today, Justice John Tsoho was sworn in as the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court. He was sworn in by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad.
He was appointed as a result of the retirement of Justice Adamu AbdulKafarati who recently attained the 65 years age of retirement yesterday.
Justice Tsoho’s elevation as acting CJ of the Federal High Court was in line with the rules that enable the most senior judge to occupy the office of the CJ when the post is vacant pending the appointment of a substantive chief judge.
Justice Tsoho who hails from Benue, was born on June 24, 1959, and appointed a judge of the Federal High Court on November 12, 1998.
