Senate Confirms Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem As President Of Court Of Appeal



Court of Appeal

The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem as the substantiative President of the Court of Appeal.

Justice Dongban-Mensem’s confirmation comes days after some Nigerians accused President Buhari of delaying her confirmation for ethnoreligious reasons, despite the recommendation of the National Judicial Council.

The President however blamed the delay on the security agencies conducting background checks on her.

Before being confirmed on Thursday, June 11, Gabriel Suswam (PDP Benue) who was a member of the committee that screened Ms. Dongban-Mensem said “she is very experienced and qualified for the job and there is is no argument as to her qualifications.”
