Kogi assembly recommends CJ’s removal for alleged gross misconduct

The Kogi state house of assembly has recommended the removal of the Chief Judge (CJ) of state, Justice Nasir Ajanah, for alleged gross misconduct.

This followed today’s adoption of the report and recommendations of the house committee on public account, which indicted the Kogi state high court and Kogi hajj commission of financial breaches.

The house said the chief judge could step aside to defend himself over the indictment by the auditor general of the state.

The house also recommended punitive measures on those indicated, to avoid a reoccurrence.

It however directed the state government to urgently resume payment of salaries of judicial workers.
