American President Joe Biden, has revealed his intentions of nominating an African-American woman to replace Justice Stephen Breyer who has decided to step down from his position.

Amongst those tipped for the succession of Breyer is legal practitioner Candace Jackson-Akiwumi, who is married to Eric Akiwumi, a Nigerian.

Biden’s decision to select a woman as Breyer’s successor also comes in line with his campaign pledge to put an African-American woman on the forefront of American court practices. This he stated during his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

While speaking at a podium recently, the POTUS also voiced his desire to speed up the nomination process—stating that his candidate will be known by the end of next month.

“I’ve made no decision except (the) person I will nominate will be someone with extraordinary qualifications, character, experience and integrity,” Biden said in an address from the White House.

“And that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court.”

83-year-old Breyer, whose resignation letter was published days back, highlighted the plans put in place to ensure the succession process occurs without hitches. He will also preside till a replacement has been selected.

“I intend this decision to take effect when the court rises for the summer recess this year (typically late June or early July) assuming that by then my successor has been nominated and confirmed,” he stated.

If appointed, Candace Jackson-Akiwumi will join a brief list of high-class Nigerian appointees of the US government in recent times. She will also become the first African-American woman to be nominated to the US Supreme Court in history.
