The British High Commission has expressed “serious concern” about the suspension of Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).

President Muhammadu Buhari had suspended Onnoghen on Friday, and subsequently supervised the swearing-in of Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed as the acting CJN.

A statement by the UK on Saturday based its concern on the constitutionality of Buhari’s action, noting that the timing of the action, which is just before the national elections, “gives cause for concern”.

The statement read: “The British High Commission expresses serious concern over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria. We have heard a wide range of credible and independent voices, including in the Nigerian legal profession and civil society, who have expressed concern over the constitutionality of the executive branch’s suspension of the chief officer of the judiciary.

“We respect Nigeria’s sovereign authority and its right to adjudicate on constitutional provisions but as friends of the Nigerian people, we are compelled to observe that the timing of this action, so close to national elections, gives cause for concern. It risks affecting both domestic and international perceptions on the credibility of the forthcoming elections. We, along with other members of the international community, are following developments closely.

“We encourage all actors to maintain calm and address the concerns raised by this development through due process, demonstrating their commitment to respecting the constitution and the impartial administration of the rule of law. We further urge them to take steps to ensure that elections take place in an environment conducive to a free, fair and peaceful process.”

Atiku demands apology and N500m from Buhari’s aide for Linking him to terrorists Gcek9ktTURBXy9lZDlhNzlhYi1jZjg2LTQ4NjQtOTY3Ni1lYjc1NzQxODJjMmYuanBnkpUDAB3NAwDNAbCTBc0DFM0BvIGhMAE

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked Lauretta Onochie, an aide of President Muhammadu Buhari, to tender apology and pay him N500 million for linking him to terrorists.

This was contained in a letter by Mike Ozekhome, lawyer to the presidential candidate.

On May 7, Onochie had tweeted that the former vice-president was on a United Arab Emirates (UAE) watch list.

“Atiku on UAE watchlist- Security sources,” Buhari’s aide tweeted.

“Security operatives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are keeping a close tab on a former Nigerian Vice Pres Atiku Abubakar who has been in the Middle East nation for several weeks now What is he doing there?

“Me: Shopping for Terrorists?”

In the letter, Ozekhome said: “Your odious publication is clearly also aimed at rubbishing our client’s image and reputation,” the letter read.

“It has caused him national and international backlash and embarrassment and done incalculable damage to him.

“Your publication has also caused our client, in the eyes of reasonable members of the public, unspeakable odium, obloquy, hatred, ridicule and psychological trauma.

“He has thereby been subjected to the shame and infamy of being viewed by members of the public as not only corrupt, but as a terrorist and sponsor of terrorism.

“Numerous telephone calls, emails, visits, letters and private social media chats by his family members, friends, political and business associates, and international statesmen and women in the last few days attest to the alarm and serious concerns generated by your false publication.”

2019 elections: How Facebook exposed APC, Buhari as real enemies of Nigeria – PDP alleges Kola Ologbondiyan 1

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said Facebook revelation detailing the alleged devious manipulations and engineering of disinformation in the 2019 general election by President Buhari’s handlers and All Progressives Congress (APC) further exposes them as “schemers and real enemies of our democracy and national cohesion.”

The party said the revelation exposed APC as a fraudulent and violent-loving party, whose divisive activities were now directly threatening the security stability of Nigeria.

A statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said: “Indeed, the Buhari Presidency and the APC should hide their faces in shame as Nigerians have seen that their professed sanctimony and ‘holier-than-thou’ claims are mere masquerading.

“Our party notes that there are more damning revelations against the APC, not only on its rigging of the general election, but also on how it is working against our nation, which will come to light at the appropriate time.

“The APC, which engaged in manipulation to foist itself, will do anything, no matter how vile, to sustain itself in office, not minding the social, economic and collateral damages such could cause our dear nation.

“Since the Facebook revelation, the Federal Government and the Presidency have suddenly gone dumb, having been exposed and shown in their true colours. However, the PDP holds to the eternal truth that no matter how lies appears to prevail, truth is bound to triumph at the end of the day.”
