In a significant development, the National Judicial Council (NJC) has taken a decisive step in the fight against nepotism within the Nigerian judiciary. Amina Yahaya Bello, the wife of fugitive figure Yahaya Bello has been omitted from the list of nominees for the prestigious position of judges in the High Court of Kogi State.

This decision many believe marks a critical victory in the ongoing battle against the undue influence of powerful figures in judicial appointments, often referred to as the “#genitalization of the judiciary.”

The exclusion of Amina Yahaya Bello, who was perceived to have been favored due to her connections, signals a shift towards transparency and meritocracy within the Nigerian legal system.

The move by the NJC has been widely praised by advocates for judicial reform and transparency in Nigeria.
