Why Buhari should withdraw charge against Justice Onnoghen -Femi Falana

By - - [General ]


Senior Nigerian lawyer, Femi Falana, has called for withdrawal of President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to withdrawn its charge against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen.

The Federal Government will on Monday, January 14, 2019, arraign the CJN before the Justice Danladi Yakubu led-Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja on charges of failures to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.

The charges against Justice Onnoghen were filed and served on him on Friday at his official residence in Abuja preparatory for his appearance at the tribunal.

Falana, speaking to Premium Times described the move against Justice Onnoghen as a “prosecutorial misadventure.”

He, therefore called on the justice minister, Abubakar Malami, to immediately withdraw the charge.

Falana said: “The charge against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen ought not to have been instituted at the Code of Conduct of Tribunal in view of the case of Nganjiwa v FRN (2017) LPELR 43391 wherein the Court of Appeal held that a judicial officer who has not been investigated by the National Judicial Council and sanctioned for misconduct cannot be arraigned in any criminal court in Nigeria.

“As all authorities are bound by the Court of Appeal verdict the case should be withdrawn by the Attorney-General of the Federation without any delay because it is likely to be a prosecutorial misadventure.”
