President Muhammadu Buhari has re-emphasized that he respects the country’s judiciary and is willing to abide by its decisions at all times.

The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday that Buhari made the statement at a dinner with representatives of the judiciary at his official residence.

Buhari said he believed that the judiciary should be independent, recalling how he submitted himself to the adjudication of the courts three times on his way to becoming president without any fuss.

”I respect the institution. I have come before you three times before I got here on the fourth run for the office. Your word is the last word on any given issue.”

Tanko assured the nation that the judiciary would continue to do its best in safeguarding the country’s judicial system.

He praised Buhari for not meddling in the affairs of courts in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Buhari had on May 14 held similar Ramadan fast-breaking with the leadership of the National Assembly at the Presidential Villa.
