The Nigeria senate has approved Hon. Justice M.B Dongban-Mensem as the new president of the Court of Appeal.
According to Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, “no petition was received against her nomination, the nominee is a fit and proper person for appointment as the President of the Court of Appeal”.
Senator Ike Ekweremadu congratulates the nominee and says, “women are making progress in the scheme of things. Because Justice Mensem is succeeding a woman who served and retired in the same capacity”.
He also advocates that the new president of the Court of Appeal joins forces with others to carry out reforms in the justice system especially in election matters.
