2023: Federal High Court announces 5-day break to allow judges vote

The federal high court has announced a 5-day break for judges, ahead of the 2023 general elections, scheduled to hold Saturday February 25, 2023.

The declaration was made by the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, FHC, Justice John Tsoho.

This was to ensure that senior judicial personnel take part in Saturday’s general elections.

The judges are to go on break after Wednesday’s sitting and come back to their duty posts on February 28, 2023 — which 3 days after the general elections.

“Your lordships are by this circular letter permitted to observe a short break in order to perform your civic duties,” Tsoho’s directive reads.

The FHC, however, directed the administrative judges in the Lagos Abuja, and Port Harcourt Judicial Divisions to work on urgent cases during the period.

They are to make sure a judge takes over the duty for the South West, North, South-East and South-South geo-political zones.
