The CJN also declared open a three-day capacity building workshop for the
members of the elections tribunal and Justices of the Court of Appeal.
Addressing the judicial officers in Abuja, Justice Ariwoola urged the Tribunal
members to consider the oath taken as an undertaken not to be handled with
levity but a solemn pledge between them and the creator.

they are expected to conduct their affairs within the ambit of the law and
warned that, as the Chief Justice of Nigeria, he will not condone any act of
recklessness, abuse of power and public trust.
