Great Victory For CJN, Walter Onnoghen, As Over 150 SANs Warm Up To Disgrace Buhari, The Entire APC, At CCT, Free Of Charge

At least 150 Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SANs, have volunteered to defend the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on Monday.

The CJN will be arraigned on Monday, over alleged failure to declare his assets as required by law, and for operating Domiciliary Foreign Currency Bank Accounts.

Constitutional Lawyer, Sebastine Hon., SAN, disclosed that the number of eminent Lawyers that have volunteered to defend the CJN, might even be more than 150.

Sebastine described the six-count criminal charge against the CJN as a deliberate attempt by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, to gag the Judiciary.

In a statement, he also urged the CJN, not to heed to what he termed as an “unholy call” for him to step aside.

“While I know that the Chief Justice of Nigeria does not enjoy immunity from criminal prosecution, I see this move by the President Muhammadu Buhari Federal Government, as dangerously political and tendentious.

“Suddenly, we woke to see a petition leaked to the informal or social media, allegedly received by the Code of Conduct, on 9th January, 2019.

“Suddenly, we are told charges have been filed against the CJN. Suddenly the Presidency is reportedly asking him to step aside! Was he interrogated or interviewed, and his own reactions obtained?”
