CJN Onnoghen’s Suspension Nothing But Wrong, Unconstitutional – Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has condemned the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari.

DAILY POST had reported that Buhari had on Friday suspended Onnoghen and immediately appointed Tanko Mohammed as acting CJN.

Explaining his reason, the President said he suspended Onnoghen, following an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, asking him to wield the big stick.

In his speech sent to newsmen, Buhari said the order demanded that the CJN be suspended depending the determination of his ongoing trial at the tribunal.

Sani described the suspension of Onnoghen as unconstitutional.

On his Twitter page, he wrote: “CJN: The suspension is nothing but wrong and unconstitutional.

“Any silence or neutrality on this is consenting to illegality.”
