President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem as president of the Court of Appeal after what appears to be hesitation on the part of Mr Buhari.

Her name was forwarded to the Senate for confirmation on Monday, according to Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity.

Dongban-Mensem recently caught Nigerians’ attention after she repeatedly volunteered as road safety official in Abuja — in remembrance of her son who was killed eight years  ago in a hit-and-run accident.

She has been acting as head of the appellate court since the retirement of Zainab Bulkachuwa in March.

Her name was forwarded to the Senate for confirmation on Monday, according to Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity.

Dongban-Mensem recently caught Nigerians’ attention after she repeatedly volunteered as road safety official in Abuja — in remembrance of her son who was killed eight years  ago in a hit-and-run accident.

She has been acting as head of the appellate court since the retirement of Zainab Bulkachuwa in March.

Although the National Judicial Council (NJC) earlier recommended her as the substantive head of the court, Buhari did not send her name to the senate for confirmation.

Instead, the president extended her tenure as acting president of the court till September.

Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, had said in a statement on Sunday that the relevant security agencies are not done with screening her.

This, he said, was why President Muhammadu Buhari has not forwarded her name to the senate for confirmation but instead appointed her in an acting position.

However, TheCable reports that an NJC insider said before any judicial officer is recommended to the president for appointment, DSS clearance is a requirement in line with the procedural rules of the council.
