The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, has charged the National Assembly with mandating that the National Judicial Council conduct a four-year salary review of judges.

On Thursday, the CJN made the announcement during the judiciary recommendations at the national public hearing of the Senate Committee on review of the 1999 Constitution in Abuja.

What the CJN said

The NJC should collect, control and disburse all monies, capital and recurrent, for the judiciary. Part 1 of the third Schedule Paragraph 21 to the Constitution should be altered to include sub-paragraph ‘h’ to the effect that NJC should in conjunction with the Salaries and Wages Commission, fix salaries and other emoluments of Judicial Staff, in the case of Judicial Officers, to review such salaries no later than four years from the last exercise.

By the dictate of Section 84 (1), the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) reviewed judges’ salary by the enactment of Certain Political, Public and Judicial Office Holders (Salaries and Allowances, etc.) (Amendment) Act, 2008.  Since this Act has not been reviewed with effect from 2008, Judges’ salaries have remained the same for about 13 years,” he pointed out.
