Earlier on Today, the Federal Government suspended the Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN, Walter Onnoghen based on order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT
According to the report, Walter Onnoghen will remain suspended pending the outcome of the CCT and in his absence Muhammed Tanko has been appointed as the acting CJN.
Former Min. Of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has reacted to the recent suspension of the CJN as he declared it unacceptable and a breach of the rule of law for the President to suspend Onnoghen.
Fani Kayode in his statement called on the National Assembly to commence the impeachment process of Pres. Buhari.
Below is an extract from Femi Fani Kayode statement via his Twitter account,
For a President in a democracy to suspend the CJN is totally unacceptable, a clear breach of the rule of law and the constitution and a manifest violation of the principle of separation of powers. If anyone thinks that we are practising democracy in Nigeria that person needs to have their heads examined.
The result of the February 16th election has already been determined and Buhari will declare himself President for life. I call on the Senate President and the Speaker of the House to stop playing games to show courage and to begin impeachment proceedings against Buhari. That is the only way to stop this man from totally destroying our country and leading us into a civil war that may never end.
