Governors of the 36 states of the federation have been asked to implement full judiciary autonomy.
The upper chamber of the national assembly while issuing the demand states that such is non-negotiable.
The senate demands were made through the chairman of the senate committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters, Opeyemi Bamidele.
While addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday, Bamidele said an independent judiciary is needed for true democracy in Nigeria, adding that no one stands to lose anything with such in place.
“Nobody stands to lose anything by granting independence to judiciary at the state level since it has been done at the national level,”.
“We are hereby calling on the state governors to do the needful because the independence of the judiciary is non- negotiable.
“No democracy can survive without being founded on the rule of law and independent judiciary.”
