– He added that Pres. Buhari just saved Nigeria and the Judiciary from shame
Alh. Abubakar Tsav, who is an Elder statesman and former Federal Commissioner in the Public Complaint Commission disclosed that the suspension handed to the Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN, Walter Onnoghen was the best thing to do in the situation.
He hinted that the suspension has saved the Judiciary arm of government and Nigeria at large from shame.
Tsav added that anyone who is not happy over the suspension is wicked and corrupt.
This latest statement comes after the Federal Government yesterday suspended the CJN Walter Onnoghen according to an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT.
Alh. Abubakar Tsav in his statement noted that the appointment of Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed as the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN will help the suspended CJN, Walter Onnoghen have time to focus on how to clear himself before the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT.
He said, “President Buhari must be commended for acting to save the judiciary and the image of our country, which was fast being reduced into a circus as the erstwhile chief interpreter of the law was about setting a dangerous precedent of ignoring court summons for him to be arraigned. It took the decisive call of Mr. President to save the judiciary from shame and save Nigeria’s democracy from the collision course that the ex-CJN’s behaviour had set it.
Tsav noted that had Justice Walter Onnoghen not been suspended “the entire democratic structure of Nigeria would have been compromised since all post-election litigations that would produce questionable rulings would have Onnoghen’s handprint all over them.”
