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.”

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I by no means found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers
    made excellent content as you did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

How places of worship, offices, hotels, others should reopen — Nigerian govt Dr Sani Aliyu

The national coordinator of the Presidential TaskForce (PTF) on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, has explained how the second phase of the gradual easing of lockdown will be implemented.

Mr Aliyu who spoke at a daily briefing of the task force on Monday said the new guidelines will be effective from Tuesday, June 2.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on April 27 announced the gradual easing of a five-week lockdown in FCT, Lagos and Ogun States.

The lockdown was eased to a nationwide night curfew (8 p.m. to 6 a.m.) from May 4 to May 17.

The first phase of the lockdown was subsequently extended by two weeks which elapses by midnight today.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, had announced that the second phase of the gradual easing of the lockdown will commencement on June 2.

He said this phase will last for an initial period of four weeks.

Nationwide curfew

Mr Aliyu said the existing nationwide curfew of 8 p.m to 6 a.m imposed by President Buhari to limit the spread of the virus has been reviewed.

He said the curfew would henceforth be from 10 p.m .to 4 a.m. daily.

“Just to clarify, the purpose of the curfew is to limit social interactions and, therefore, reduce the risk of transmission of the virus,” he said.

‘Banks’

Mr Aliyu said all banks in the country are allowed to resume fully from Tuesday.

“Full opening of financial sector – banks are now allowed to operate normal working hours, five days a week,” he said.

Before now, banks were allowed to operate between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

‘Religious gathering’

Mr Aliyu also announced the lifting of ban placed on religious gatherings in the country.

He, however, said the opening of places of worship will be based on state government’s protocols.

“Restricted opening of places of worship, (regular church & mosque services ONLY), will be based on State Government protocols and restrict guidelines on physical distancing and other non-pharmaceutical interventions,” he said.

He noted that the gathering of more than 20 people is still highly prohibited.

“The mass gathering of more 20 persons outside of workplaces or place of worship remains prohibited,” he said.

Interstate travel

He said that the existing interstate ban remains in place.

He said movement across state borders remains restricted other than the free movement of goods and essential services.

“Interstate travel by individuals remains prohibited except for goods &essential travel.

“Just to make it clear all restrictions on the free movement of goods and services are now removed in this phase,” he said.

He urged the security services to cooperate with the public to ensure goods are allowed free passage.

He said this particular phase is directed at ensuring the economy starts moving again.

Offices

He said government offices are allowed to open from Mondays to Fridays.

“Normal working would apply to offices other than government offices provided this is kept within the curfew hours.

“Offices are to maintain the two metres physical distances.

“For government offices, they can open between 9am and 2pm and can work from Monday to Fridays.

“However only persons that are within the grade 14 and above will be allowed to come to work, he said”.

‘Local Flights’

He said the aviation sector will begin to develop protocols that will lead to the resumption of domestic flights any time from June 21.

“Aviation Industry requested to start developing protocols for domestic flights to possibly resume from June 21 onwards,” he said.

“Airlines must ensure physical distancing by reducing passenger capacity, ensure the provision of sanitizers, and appropriate PPEs as well as carrying out temperature checks at the point of entry and departure and ensuring that airports are not congested by either travelers or airport staff.”

Hotels, restaurants, schools

He said hotels may open but must observe all non-pharmaceutical interventions.

He also said restaurants outside of hotels must remain closed for eat-in.

“Bars, gyms, cinemas, nightclubs, parks closed until further evaluation,” he said.

He also said all schools to remain closed until further evaluation.
