A former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami (retd.), on Thursday broke his silence on his appointment as the Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Cases Trial Monitoring Committee set up by the National Judicial Council.
Salami divulged his reason for rejecting the appointment in an interview with The PUNCH on Thursday.
A national newspaper had earlier reported on Thursday that Salami rejected the appointment because of some persons included as members of the committee.
But Salami confirmed to our correspondent in a telephone interview that he rejected the appointment because it was not in his interest.
