ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned the move by the Federal Government to forcefully remove the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN),Justice Walter Onnoghen, from office.
In a statement he sent to Sundiata Post on Saturday, Fani-Kayode said:
“Deji Adeyanju in custody and being framed with murder.
“Dino Melaye in custody and being framed with attempted murder.
“Doyin Okupe in custody and being framed with corruption.
“Sambo Dasuki in custody and being framed with corruption.
“Ibrahim El Zak Zaky in custody and being framed with murder.
“Nnamdi Kanu in exile and being framed with treason.
“Meanwhile the Chief Justice of the Federation has been added to the list. Buhari has directed that he should vacate his seat and prepare for arraignment on criminal charges on Monday.
“This is all part of a well-crafted script. The bitter truth is that democracy is dead in Nigeria. If anyone thinks that Buhari intends to leave power this year or anytime in the near future they need to think again”.
The government has filed criminal charges against the CJN and has concluded plans to arraign him before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday, January 14.
According to a release by PRNigeria on Saturday, the government has also asked Onnoghen to vacate office as CJN.
