The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

According to Daily Post, the organisations described President Buhari action as a mockery of the country’s constitution.

Buhari suspended Onnoghen on Friday, January 25, 2019, and appointed Tanko Mohammed as the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).

Speaking further, NANS spokesman, Adeyemi Azeez, in a statement issued to newsmen, wondered why the President has refused to act on the bribery allegation levelled against Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state.

The statement reads “The national leadership of NANS condemned in totality the suspension of the CJN by President Muhammad Buhari, as it is obvious that the president lacks the constitutional power to suspend the CJN.

“NANS describes this as a day light robbery and mockery of the country’s constitution and a total threat on the country’s hard earned democracy.

“NANS make bold to say that it is obvious that President Buhari has shifted from been integrity conscious; this is nothing but a total disrespect for the rule of law.

“NANS is convinced beyond doubts, that President Muhammad Buhari’s fight against corruption isn’t basically targeted towards some persons, as NANS had severally called on the President to sanction Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, on a well-established video revelations of bribery against him.

“It saddens our hearts that the president till date had done nothing to sanction Ganduje, but was so quick in sanctioning the CJN.

“NANS hereby declares the suspension of the CJN as null and void.”

Meanwhile, youths in the Niger-Delta, under the aegis of United Niger Delta Youth Councilhave disowned Onnoghen.

According to the group, the suspended CJN has brought shame to the region.

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, says Osun State is dying as it is paying so much on workers’ salaries without generating revenue.
Addressing newsmen in Iwo yesterday at the Engr Ademola Adedapo’s annual secondary schools’ quiz competition, Oluwo said unless the Osun civil service was overhauled, the state might find it difficult to pay salaries.
The monarch urged the state government to increase the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to improve the fortune of the state.
He said: “We’ve a problem in Osun and we’ve to shout and tell the world that we’re sick in Osun. It’s just the truth I’m telling you. We need to upgrade and update our civil service to be IT-compliant and we’ve to create a way to find other jobs for them in the civil service.
“With what’s going on in Osun, we don’t have the money. I’m in this government and it doesn’t matter because I’m a traditional ruler. I’ve to be concerned on how government can succeed.
“We’ve so many workers for some jobs. I’m not telling them to retrench, but government should find some ways out of this situation. How much is the allocation of Osun State in a month? Can it pay the wage bill or salary? Civil servants themselves should be more creative. Civil service is the largest employer of labour in this state and the IGR is nothing. We need to create more IGR.
“Osun is dying. The state is paying so much money and not making money. People have to pay tax and there should be more ways of ensuring the payment of informal taxes. There are many incomes being generated through informal sector and is not coming to the government.”
Responding, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Festus Olajide, said the Oluwo had “not minced words in telling the truth.”
He said the quiz competition had brought out test and measurement in terms of performance of students in public schools.
