President Muhammadu Buhari has never interfered in court issues, according to Nigeria’s Chief Justice, Justice Tanko Muhammad.
“In all your years in office, at no time, no moment did Mr. President or any other person from you attempt to talk or ask for favors from the courts.
“We can recall no such attempt by you or anyone on your behalf to interfere with judicial decisions”, he stated Thursday night.
