It is not clear if the president has such powers to suspend the CJN.

The new CJN is Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed from Bauchi State.

He was sworn in by Mr Buhari Friday afternoon inside the council chamber of State House Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The swearing was done after the president signed the new Executive Order 007.

He was driven into the forecourt of the president’s office at about 4:30 p.m. in a black Mercedes Benz C240 with number plate GWA:900FA.
