    The 66-year-old new Chief Justice of Nigeria will be taking over from
    retired Justice Mahmoud Mohammed. Prof. Osibanjo also disclosed that President Buhari asked him to tell the new Chief Justice of Nigeria, that he's assuming office at a time “when all arms of government suffers from loss of confidence from the people”.
