Tinubu Finally Reacts To Suspension Of Onnoghen, Reveals What OBJ Would Have Done

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday supported President Muhammadu Buhari’s suspension of Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

responding to criticisms over Onnoghen’s suspension said those who were
faulting the President’s decision, particularly Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of
the Peoples Democratic Party, apparently did not know the difference
between suspension and sacking.

The APC Leader said this in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists on Tuesday.

On what will happen to the CJN, Tinubu noted that If the CJN is exonerated, then he will return to his position.

however, noted if it was during Obasanjo/Atiku adminstration Onnoghen
would have been “shipped off to that infamous farm in Ota where he would
have begun his new career in plucking poultry.”

The statement
read: “Buhari actually exercised considerable restraint in this matter.
He has reasonably balanced concerns about the integrity of the judiciary
with concerns for the individual rights of the accused.

“Nothing has been taken from the CJN that cannot be restored if the facts warrant such restoration.

President Buhari conditionally suspended the CJN. By doing so, this
allows for the case to move forward without the CCT or others fearing
the CJN might use his position to unduly interfere with proceedings.

“If the CJN is exonerated, then he will return to his position. If not exonerated, then a more permanent discipline awaits him.

is an imminently fair and balanced approach, especially given the fact
that the constitution and other laws really do not provide clear and
unambiguous guidance in how to proceed in a case whether the CJN is the
defendant under this unique fact pattern.

“While Atiku rails
against Buhari because of this act of restraint, we can but imagine the
tack Chief Obasanjo and Atiku would have taken if they presided over
this situation.

“By now, they would have put CJN Onnoghen in the stocks or shipped him off to that infamous farm in Ota where he would have begun his new career in plucking poultry.”

Moghalu: FG Has No Regard For Judiciary, INEC

Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration has no regard for the Judiciary including the electoral body- the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

the presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), said
that the present government has attacked the judiciary in a
constitutional coup d’etat and does not respect the independence of any
institution, including INEC. The YPP presidential candidate made this
statement during the 70th Anniversary of the Nigerian Tribune titled:
“Unveiling of the New Look Tribune” held at Sheraton Hotels, Lagos.

during the event on a theme: “Electoral Integrity, Legitimacy of
Democratic Institutions and Good Governance,” Moghalu said he was afraid
for INEC and cannot say he has faith in them, until they do the right
thing after the elections are concluded. He said: “Well, INEC would have
to demonstrate its effectiveness and its impartiality. And we can only
see that after the elections have been conducted and concluded.

PDP Mocks Buhari, APC Over “Failed” Campaign In Owerri

According to the PDP, the situation was so pathetic that a discomfited President Buhari could not articulate any message to support his re-election bid but told Nigerians to vote for any candidate of their choice in the general election.

The PDP said, “It was pitiable to
watch Mr. President garble, as the audience who refused to carry APC
broom also remained passive, while many started leaving the venue while
he was still presenting his address.

“Ironically, President
confessed that he had nothing new to tell Nigerians. If anything, the
APC Presidential candidate, in his party’s usual penchant for false
performance claims, alluded to a non-existent ‘market money’ which
elicited heckles from the audience.

“The fact that a sitting
President cannot attract a meaningful audience from the same state where
a mammoth and overflowing crowd received Atiku Abubakar, just a week
ago, further confirms that Nigerians, across the board, have indeed
attained a consensus to return the PDP to power, come February 16, 2019.

PDP therefore charges President Buhari to counsel himself, end his
desperation for power and spend the remaining days to prepare his hand
over notes to Atiku Abubakar, so that our nation can be returned to the
path of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity, which has
eluded us in almost four years.”

NJC May Sack Onnoghen, Mohammed To End Crisis

The National Judicial Council (NJC) yesterday gave the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen and the one acting, Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, a-week ultimatum to respond to the allegations of corruption and professional misconduct levelled against them.

to the gravity of the allegations, the NJC abridged the time and gave
the accused persons one week instead of the usual 14 working days to
respond to the allegations, an indication that they may be sacrificed to
restore sanctity in the highly revered arm of government.

council asked Onnoghen to explain why he did not declare all his assets
and Mohammed why he submitted himself for appointment without the
involvement of the NJC.The body, with the powers to discipline erring
judicial officers, held the emergency meeting principally to consider
petitions written against the two most senior judicial officers in the
country. Since the two are incidentally involved in the crisis, they
expectedly recused themselves from the meeting.

As a result,
former president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Umaru Abdullahi, was
elected interim chairman to preside over the meeting.The next in rank at
the Supreme Court, who incidentally is not a member of the NJC, Justice
Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, could not be drafted into the meeting, since he
may be the obvious beneficiary of the crisis.

If the council
sanctions Onnoghen and Mohammed with dismissal, Rhodes-Vivour would
automatically step in as the most senior justice of the Supreme Court
and the NJC would recommend him to the president for appointment.

the NJC had to abridge the time also because Justice Mohammed is
occupying the office based on an interim order. Interim orders have
short life spans. If the order expires, there will be the need for a
fresh order to continue to keep him in office, as vacancy must be

anyone occupying the office of the CJN in acting capacity cannot be
reappointed by the president if he fails to get the Senate confirmation
at the expiration of three months and it is not likely the current
Senate would confirm anyone not nominated by the NJC.

231 (1) of the 1999 Constitution states: “The appointment of a person
to the office of Chief Justice of Nigeria shall be made by the President
on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council subject to
confirmation of such appointment by the Senate.”

Subsection 4
provides that: “If the office of Chief Justice of Nigeria is vacant or
if the person holding the office is for any reason unable to perform the
functions of the office, then until a person has been appointed to and
has assumed the functions of that office, or until the person holding
has resumed those functions, the President shall appoint the most senior
Justice of the Supreme Court to perform those functions.”

5, however, provides that “Except on the recommendation of the National
Judicial Council, an appointment pursuant to the provisions of
subsection (4) of this section shall cease to have effect after the
expiration of three months from the date of such appointment, and the
President shall not re-appoint a person whose appointment has lapsed.”

appointment by the president happened when there was no vacancy for the
office.In the petition against Onnogen, a civil society group, Resource
Centre for Human Rights & Civil Education had accused him of
non-declaration of his assets as required by law for public officers. He
was charged with the offence at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
This resulted in President Muhammadu Buhari suspending him and swearing
in Mohammed in his place.

Consequently, another civil society
group, Centre for Justice and Peace Initiative, and a former president
of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN)
petitioned against Mohammed for accepting the invitation to be sworn in
as the acting CJN.

In the petition dated January 28, Agbakoba
said Mohammed should be sanctioned for assuming office “despite knowing
of his unconstitutional appointment.”“Hon. Justice Tanko is fully aware
of the state of law, yet presented himself to be sworn in by the

“Incidentally, Justice Tanko was a member of the NJC
panel that removed Justice Obisike Orji of the Abia State High Court for
accepting to be sworn in as chief judge by the governor of Abia State
without the recommendation of the NJC.“It is a matter of regret that
Justice Tanko who participated in this process will lend himself to this
constitutional infraction.

“We pray the NJC to determine this
petition in line with the decision in Justice Obisike Orji by
immediately removing Tanko as Justice of the Supreme Court on grounds of
gross misconduct which has generated perhaps the most controversial
crisis in Nigeria’s judicial history.”

Not being a judicial
officer, the NJC referred the petition written against the CCT Chairman,
Danladi Umar, to the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC), saying
it is the appropriate constitutional body empowered to deal with it.The
body adjourned to February 11.

”She Is A Disgrace To Womanhood” – Nigerian Man Says After He Beat His Wife To Death Over Alleged Infidelity

”She Is A Disgrace To Womanhood” – Nigerian Man Says After He Beat His Wife To Death Over Alleged Infidelity

A 32-year-old man, Jibrin Abu, pictured above, has been arrested by
the police in Niger state for allegedly beating his wife, Victoria, to
death with a piece of wood over allegations that she cheated on him. 

According to the police, Abu who hails from Dabogi village in Lapai,
used a piece of wood to beat his wife to death for failing to heed to
his warning that she should stop talking on phone to male friends.

Narrating what happened, Abu said his wife is a disgrace to
womanhood. He accused her of bringing men into their matrimonial home
and that he killed her to save his family name from shame.

“I used a wood to kill her after several warnings for her to desist
from taking calls from men in my house. I have been suspecting that my
wife was sleeping around with other men in my village but in the heat of
argument, I killed her.  My late wife brought men into our matrimonial
home and my culture abhors such an act; that was why I killed her to
save the family from the shame,” he added.

Confiirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police
command, Muhammad Abubakar, said Abu, after killing his wife, attempted
to commit suicide by drinking Sniper insecticide,  but he was rushed to
the Lapai General Hospital by police operatives and was treated.

Abubakar added that Abu would be charged to court soon.
