Suspension of CJN weeks to elections abuse, utter disregard for constitution – Group tells Buhari
The Wake up Nigeria Group, a group championing the cause of good governance has described the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon Justice Walter Onnogen by President Muhammadu Buhari, three weeks to the general elections as abuse and utter disregard to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that brought him to power in 2015.
The group made this declaration in a statement issued by its Chairperson, Maryam Yusuf, a copy which was made available to DAILY POST on Tuesday.
Yusuf in the statement argued that the constitution which is the ground norm for all actions and inactions of public office holders including the President has not only been jettisoned but cruelly slaughtered, murdered with the suspension of the CJN.
The group called on the National Assembly which is the only surviving arm of government to prevail on the President.
She said, “The recent suspension of the CJN, Hon Justice Walter Onnogen by President Buhari, three weeks to the general elections, is the zenith of abuse and utter disregard to the constitution of the federal Republic of Nigeria that brought him to power in 2015.
“It is a fact beyond contradiction that those whom the gods want to destroy, they first make mad, this timeless axiom summarizes the miserable state of the self-acclaimed gatekeeper of our dear nation.
