Justice Tsoho gave the advice while fielding questions from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) shortly after a programme for the court’s 2022/2023 Legal Year Service at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Abuja.

The chief judge, who urged everyone to be prayerful as the elections approach, said the country would overcome all its challenges if everyone depends on God.

“Well, the sermon by the priest says everything.
“We have to be prayerful and allow ourselves to be guided by God because He is the one who has entrusted us with these positions and responsibilities.

“So we have to acknowledge him at all time and I know and believe that with God, one can never go wrong.

“So, whatever the challenges, we will be able to overcome if we depend on God,” he said.
On his advice to the fellow judges, Tsoho said: “It is still what I have said; it is nothing different and that is why we have come to church.

“Though some others (judges) are of other faith but they too have gone to pray according to their faith.

“So I advice that they should approach their job with the fear of God. That is what is paramount.”
Earlier, Rev. Father Moses Jimbili enjoined the judges to always begin with God, and end everything in God as they discharge their duties.(NAN)
