If Buhari approves Onnoghen, who is from Cross-River State, as the 17th CJN, he will become the first Southern jurist to head the Judiciary in about 29 years.Justice Ayo Gabriel Irikefe, who retired in 1987, was the last Southern CJN.

There will be no vacuum... The man has already nominated someone else, it's left for approval and appointment... Either a northerner or southerner, important thing is competence.
