The CJN said;

“I will accept it 100 percent, because this is something for the nation. It is not something for one individual. 

“But where the law has conferred powers on a particular individual, he has to exercise powers; there is nothing you can do.

“But certainly, if this would be amended, I give 100 percent for the amendment.”
