The JSC had advertised the position on 29th October 2013 and recieved a total of 12 applications.
The commission then shortlisted 7 candidates but then re-advertised the position on 24th December in order to increase the pool from which to make a selection.
Due to the later advertisement, the commission then shortlisted four candidates from the second round of applications.
Following a 'competitive recruitment process', the commission appointed Amadi as the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary.
