The Senate has approached the Supreme Court over the interpretation of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

To this effect, the Senate has therefore cancelled its plenary on Tuesday.

In a statement by the Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, explained that the Senate earlier on Monday filed a case in the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court, seeking its interpretation on whether President Muhammadu Buhari acted within the provision of the constitution in his suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Hon. Justice Walter Nkannu Onnoghen.

“Or whether the action of the President does amount to usurpation of the powers of the Senate as provided for in Section 292 of the constitution.

“Following the filing of the case, the matter of the suspension of the CJN which is the main issue for which the Senate had planned to reconvene tomorrow, has become subjudiced.

“Therefore, in line with the standing rules of the Senate not to debate issues that are already pending before the court, the reconvening of the Senate tomorrow has been put off.

“The previous adjournment of the Senate till February 19, 201,9 stays”.

The Senate was scheduled to reconvene and discuss the suspension of Justice Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari and the appointment of an acting CJN, Tanko Mohammed.

South West Governors react to call by Northern elders that Fulani herdsmen should leave Southern region

South West Governors react to call by Northern elders that Fulani herdsmen should leave Southern region south west governors

South-West Governors Forum has reacted to a recent call by Northern Elders Forum, NEF, asking herdsmen to leave the Southern region of the country and return to the North.

Governors of the South West said the call was most unfortunate, divisive and retrogressive.

The Chairman of NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, had in a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, claimed that there was a move by some trouble elements to engage herders with violence in the Southern part of the country, while directing the herders to return to the North.

South-West Governors’ reaction was contained in a statement personally signed by the Forum’s Chairman and Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Friday.

The statement added, ”With no intention to engage anyone, it is incumbent on us, as elected representatives of our people in the South West Region of the country, to denounce this divisive and retrogressive statement in the strongest terms possible.

“The Southwest Governors viewed the report with palpable trepidation and outrage, the sustained attempts to fan the ember of discord, seizing every opportunity offered by the current security challenge to undermine the unity and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.”

“It is appalling, to assert the least, that the tragic incident, which claimed the life of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Pa Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere, would be used by certain persons to advance the cause of parochial and prebendal politics.

“We intend to get to the root of the sad occurrence as we await the findings of security agencies on the unfortunate incident.”

“The governors and the people of the South West are working assiduously, at the current security challenges with a view to finding lasting solutions to curtail the nefarious activities of undesirable elements bent on wrecking our collective peace.

”We are not unaware of the antics of certain elements, who hope to garner political mileage from the contrived crises in virtually all parts of the country.

“We are equally convinced that this confusion serves the narrow interests of some persons.

“The country has a rich history; she has had to encounter adversities in the course of her transition to nationhood.

“She has overcome them all. This distraction will also pass. We look up to the security agencies to take cohesive steps to curtail this major challenge of insecurity which engenders hopelessness.

“We can only enjoin all citizens, on our part, to be patient and continue to cooperate with them as they combat the festering crises.

“We on our part have taken great strides with the hope that great success will be achieved.

“We, however, note, with discomfiture, the unpatriotic acts of some Nigerians, who will stop at nothing in their bid to undermine the Federal Government.”

Buhari vs Atiku: I got presidential election results from website operated by INEC official – ICT expert tells tribunal Buhari Atiku 1 1

An ICT expert from Kenya, David Ayu Nyango Njoga on Friday said he retrieved the results of the 2019 presidential election from a server allegedly operated by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Njong, who is a petitioner’s witness, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal that the results of the last elections were stored in a server allegedly operated by INEC.

According to Njoga, he only got the report which he later analysed from a third party website: “www.factdontlieng.com”.

Claiming that the information was provided by an INEC official, Njoga informed the tribunal that the alleged INEC official acted as an anonymous person.

When asked if the website belonged to INEC, he said no but by a whistle-blower.

Njonga said the website was created on March 12, 2019.

When reminded that the presidential election held on February 23 and the results were released before March 12, the witness went mute.
