Onnoghen: AREWA backs Buhari 0 0
GIST -  Onnoghen: AREWA backs Buhari
The Board of Trustees (BOT), of the Arewa Consultative
Forum (ACF) has backed President Muhammadu Buhari’s
suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter
Onnoghen, saying allowing the CJN to be tried by the NJC
would have amounted to allowing him “seat (sic) in
judgment over his own case”.
Justice Onnoghen
In a communiqué issued at the end of its meeting in Kaduna,
the Forum said by his conduct, the CJN has demonstrated
that his personal interest supersedes that of the nation.
The statement reads.
“The ACF notes that the allegation against the Chief Justice
of Nigeria, CJN, are that he failed to comply with the
expressed provisions of the Code of Conduct Bureau Act, to
wit, failure to declare his assets on assumption of office
as Justice of the supreme Court and as the Chief Justice of
“That when he was made to declare his assets as demanded
by law, he failed to declare all of them.
“Following the discovery of these infractions, the Code of
Conduct Bureau, CCB, swiftly referred the matter to the
Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT. Which made an order for the
temporary suspension of the CJN in the interest of natural
justice? However, this action by the CCT has provoked
intense controversy.
“And yet, from a reading of all the facts of the matter, ACF
cannot defend the position taken by the Hon. Justice
Onnoghen, especially his insistence that he should first be
tried by the National Judicial Council, of which he is
Chairman. To do so would have allowed him the seat in
judgment over his own case.
“ACF deeply regrets the conduct of Justice Onnoghen,
particularly his refusal to step aside and allow the due
process o f the law to take its course. He has created the
impression that his personal interests in this matter
supercede that of the judiciary and the nation.
“On their part, law enforcement agencies must strive to
always execute their tasks in neat and professional manner
in order to avoid creating perceptions of partisanship.
“In the end, Nigeria cannot hope to develop and take its
rightful place in the comity of nations unless and until we
learn to respect our laws and enforce them fairly and
consistently” the statement added.

Buhari should not have sacked him

Of course they will back him. Is there anything Nigerians won't do for their brothers even when they are wrong?
