BREAKING: US reacts to suspension of Justice Onnoghen, tells Buhari what to do n

By - - [General ]


The United States of America has reacted to the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement from the US embassy on Saturday, the Executive arm of government was called upon to respect the rule of law and resolve issues surrounding Onnoghen’s removal peacefully.

In a statement it released on the matter, the US faulted the CJN removal without the support of the legislative arm.

It said, “The Embassy of the United States is deeply concerned by the impact of the executive branch’s decision to suspend and replace the Chief Justice and head of the judicial branch without the support of the legislative branch on the eve of national and state elections.

“We note widespread Nigerian criticism that this decision is unconstitutional and that it undermines the independence of the judicial branch.

“That undercuts the stated determination of government, candidates, and political party leaders to ensure that the elections proceed in a way that is free, fair, transparent, and peaceful – leading to a credible result.

“We urge that the issues raised by this decision be resolved swiftly and peacefully in accordance with due process, full respect for the rule of law, and the spirit of the Constitution of Nigeria. Such action is needed urgently now to ensure that this decision does not cast a pall over the electoral process.”
