Tinubu Finally Speaks On Onnoghen, Reveals What Buhari Would Have Done In His Time

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.

Tinubu 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.

He, 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.
“Thus, 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.

“This 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.”

When he assumed office in May 1999, Bola Ahmed Tinubu promised 10,000 housing units for the poor. During the eight-year period of his being in office, he made large investments in education in the state. He also initiated new road construction, required to meet the needs of the fast-growing population of the state.
