The Senate has fixed Wednesday, 21st September, 2022, to screen the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola.

This was made known in a welcome address delivered by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Tuesday.

The two chambers resumed activities after two-month Annual Summer Recess.

Lawan said the Senate would also begin work on Medium Term Expenditure Framework/Fiscal Strategy Paper (MTEF/FSP) 2023 – 2025, Budget 2023.

The statement read in part: “In the next three months our focus will largely be on the confirmation of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, work on Medium Term Expenditure Framework/Fiscal Strategic Paper (MTEF/FSP) 2023 – 2025, Budget 2023, working to support our defense and security forces, amongst others.
