Senate confirms Ibrahim Imam as Grand Khadi

The confirmation followed the consideration of the report of Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters during plenary.

The report was presented by Chairman of the Committee, Sen. David Umaru.

In his remarks, the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, said “let me on behalf of the entire Senate congratulate the new Grand Khadi of Sharia Court of Appeal, Hon. Ibrahim Rufai Imam and wish him a successful tenure.

“I hope that he continues to play his role in the judiciary.

“So far, we have treated about 240 confirmations here in the Senate, of which, 227 have been affirmative and only 13 have been negative.

“Sometime, we get the impression that this Senate tends to say more ‘No’ than ‘Yes’ but these numbers today show the level of cooperation that we will continue to give the executive,” Saraki added.
