About the Council

The National Judicial Council is one of the Federal Executive Bodies created by virtue of Section 153 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

In order to insulate the Judiciary from the whims and caprices of the Executive; hence guarantee the independence of this Arm of Government, which is a sine qua non for any democratic Government, the National Judicial Council was created and vested with enormous powers and functions:

Advice the President or Governor on any matter referred to them by such parties, pertaining to the judiciary;

Appoint, dismiss and exercise disciplinary control over members and staff of the Council, and disburse all moneys of the Council;

Deal with all other matters relating to broad issues of policy and administration.
