The swearing in of Justice Tanko as the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria against all odds by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday to replace Justice Onnoghen the CJN has generated a lot of interest in Justice Tanko background.
It has been revealed that the Acting Chief Justice has a total of 32 children with different women as it not possible for one woman to give birth such number of offsprings.
This revelation was released to supposedly scrutinise the possibility of him being able to cater for all 32 children with his salary as a justice of the Federal Republic of Nigeria without being involved in shady deals as well.
According to Reno Omokri who made this revelation, Tanko also have a reputation but he has decided not to delve into that but while wondering how possible it is for Justice Tanko to cater for all 32 children unless by miracle.
“Let me shock Nigerians. Justoce Tanko, who Buhari, the so called anti corruption advocate, swore in, has 32 kids and a reputation I won’t even bother stating here. How has Tanko been feeding and caring for his 32 children on a judge’s salary? It is a MIRACLE” stated Reno Omokri on social media.
It is common religious practice in the northern part of Nigeria for men to have up to 3 wives with no limit to the number of kids that one can bear.
This has in some cases contributed to the high number of Almajiris in northern Nigeria that resort to begging to survive having no parents to take them in and care form.
