The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has described judges in the country as prone to health challenges because “they work extra hours.”
The CJN spoke in a message he sent at the commissioning of the Justice Umaru Abdullahi Health Clinic, built by the Katsina State government, for judiciary workers in the area.
A Supreme Court judge, Justice Uwani Abba Aji, represented the CJN at the ceremony.

Muhammad urged other state governments to emulate the Katsina State in the provision of healthcare facilities for judiciary officers in their respective states.
“I also urge state governments to respect the independence of the judiciary to enhance good governance and the rule of law,” the CJN was quoted as saying.
