“I have received a message encouraging lawmakers to come on Tuesday, The idea now is to use the numerical significance of the non-APC senators to oppose the suspension and release a strong statement,” a lawmaker said.

Also appearing not to approve of President Buhari’s actions, the United States of America has voiced its concern over the CJN’s removal just weeks to the general elections, the United State embassy made this known in a statement, which reads:

“The Embassy of the United States is deeply concerned by the impact of the executive branch’s decision to suspend and replace the Chief Justice and head of the judicial branch without the support of the legislative branch on the eve of national and state elections.

“We note widespread Nigerian criticism that this decision is unconstitutional and that it undermines the independence of the judicial branch.

“That undercuts the stated determination of the government, candidates, and political party leaders to ensure that the elections proceed in a way that is free, fair, transparent, and peaceful — leading to a credible result.

“We urge that the issues raised by this decision be resolved swiftly and peacefully in accordance with due process, full respect for the rule of law, and the spirit of the Constitution of Nigeria.

“Such action is needed urgently now to ensure that this decision does not cast a pall over the electoral process.”

However, explaining his actions, President Buhari stated that it was necessary to have a change at the top of the justice system, the President insists that the CJN should have done the honourable thing by removing himself from office since the issue of his asset declaration and unexplained money found in his accounts were first discovered.

Buhari said:

“Although the allegations in the petition are grievous enough in themselves, the security agencies have since then traced other suspicious transactions running into millions of dollars to the CJN’s personal accounts, all undeclared or improperly declared as required by law. Perhaps more worrisome is the Chief Justice of Nigeria’s own written admission to the charges that he indeed failed to follow the spirit and letter of the law in declaring his assets, citing ’’mistake’’ and ’’forgetfulness’’ which are totally unknown to our laws as defences in the circumstances of his case.

“One expected that with his moral authority so wounded, by these serious charges of corruption, more so by his own written admission, Mr Justice Walter Onnoghen would have acted swiftly to spare our Judicial Arm further disrepute by removing himself from superintending over it while his trial lasted.

“It is against this background that I have received the Order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal directing me to suspend the Chief Justice pending final determination of the cases against him.

“It also explains why I am not only complying immediately but with some degree of relief for the battered sensibilities of ordinary Nigerians whose patience must have become severely over-taxed by these anomalies.

“In line with this administration’s avowed respect for the Rule of Law, I have wholeheartedly obeyed the Order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal dated 23rd January 2019. Accordingly, I hereby suspend the Honourable Mr Justice Walter Nkanu Samuel Onnoghen, GCON as the Chief Justice of Nigeria pending final determination of the case against him at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“In further compliance with the same Order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, I hereby invite Honourable Justice Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed JSC, being the next most Senior Justice in the Supreme Court, to come forward to take the Judicial Oath as Chief Justice of Nigeria in an Acting Capacity. Fellow Nigerians, we can only stand a chance to win the fight against Corruption, and position our dear nation for accelerated development when we stand together to contend against it.”

killings in nigeria: pdp chairman, secondus advises buhari on what to do Killings in Nigeria: PDP Chairman, Secondus advises Buhari on what to do Secondus PDP 400x240

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to involve the state governments and other relevant stakeholders in any strategy aimed at tackling the worsening security situation in the country.

Prince Secondus, who spoke in Port Harcourt Rivers State at a victory thanksgiving service by Governor Neysom Wike on Saturday, said the federal government had lost focus and idea of how to handle the security challenges.

The National Chairman said that the security problems are overwhelming the government because it’s detached from the people through its isolationist system of governance.

“You cannot isolate the people you govern and expect to get the necessary cooperation and support needed to tackle issues like security.

“That’s why they must try to carry the state governors along if they hope to decisively tackle the security challenges.”

On what happened in the Rivers state during the gubernatorial election, Secondus said that those who played god with the election did not realize that there real God was in charge in the state.

“They were in Abuja playing God sending military saying it will never happen but they forgot that nobody can surmount the army of God.”

Secondus praised the people of Rivers State for standing up in defence of democracy pointing out that the supreme sacrifice of deaths and other stress they were subjected to during the election cannot be in vain.

He charged those who are still in doubt about the miracle of God in deciding who gets what in political power struggle to look at what happened in Rivers state during the election and learn.
