Breaking: FG Asks CJN Onnoghen To Vacate Office Over Asset Declaration by Ebullience(m): 1:56pm On Jan 12
…. To be Arraigned on Criminal Charged

The Federal Government has declared war against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen asking him to immediately vacate his exalted office as Head of the Nation’s judiciary over alleged sundry asset declaration issues.


In a move to force Justice Onnoghen out of office, the Federal Government will on Monday January 14, 2019 arraigned 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 charge sighted against Justice Onnoghe has already being filed and served on him last Friday at his official residence in Abuja preparatory for his appearance at the tribunal.

The Federal Government among others is accusing Nigeria’s Head of the Judiciary of refusal to declare his assets in breach of the provision of the Code of Conduct Bureau Act.

He is also being accused of maintaining Domiciliary foreign currencies account which comprised Dollars Account, Pound Sterling Account and Euro Account which are alleged to be contrary to relevant laws, especially for public office holders.

Justice Nnoghen whose appointment suffered unprecedented delay by President Muhammadu Buhari over undisclosed issues may be the first CJN in Nigeria to be arraigned for criminal charges by the Federal Government.

Apart from putting the Chief Justice in the dock on Monday, PRNigeria learned that motion on notice is to be filed against him praying the tribunal to order him to vacate office and recuse himself office so as to prevent alleged interference in his arraignment and trial.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria names withheld has been engaged by Federal Government to lead the onslaught against justice Onnoghen, while PRNigeria could not ascertain names of those who will lead the defence team for CJN.

However, it is gathered that eminent lawyers have volunteered to put their services at the disposal of Justice Onnoghen in the bid to rescue him from the claws of the government.

It would be recalled the President of the Senate of Nigeria, Dr. Bukola Saraki was in 2015 shortly he emerged the Head of the Legislature arraigned at the tribunal but the charges against him were quashed and he was discharged and acquitted by the tribunal on the ground that the charges against him by government were based on hearsay that could not stand in the face of the law.

Saraki’s discharge and acquittal was upheld by the Supreme Court under the leadership of Justice Onnoghen.

grin grin grin grin Hehehe! Vacate office? Have he been convicted already? Who among the many indicted fellas in this present government resigned their post to face prosecution?

They still want to quench out the only prominent southerner in this satanic govt.Buhari never publicly decleared his net worth/assets as he promised.

The VP(#5B NEMA scandal), AGF, EFCC boss,Obono-Obla, have all been gravely implicated in numerous corrupt acts but the hausa-fulani presidency cabal have kept them in position. Abdulrasheed Maina, Abba Kyari, Kemi Adeosun, Lawal Daura, Lawal Babachir, Mikanti Baru etc are all free men today.

VP Osinbajo took courage to make Onneghen's appointment but Buhari/cabal have never been happy hence it's time for another aboki to take over.

I laugh @ a lots of southern idiots who say the Buhari led APC government is the best to happen to Nigeria. We're in hell already.

Any person who is obsessed with proclaiming his “integrity” at the slightest opportunity but won’t investigate, much less fire, shady characters he has appointed to work with and for him can’t possibly be truly a person of integrity.

From PTF to The Buhari Organization (TBO), Buhari has consistently protected corrupt close aides from the consequences of their ethical and legal infractions.

This attitude of mollycoddling corrupt but loyal aides and appointees while pretending to be a man of “integrity” who is “fighting” corruption is getting worse by the day and indicates that, in spite of self-righteous declarations to the contrary, Buhari is himself morally indistinguishable from his crooked cronies.


It is impossible to deploy the resources of logic to argue that Buhari has integrity. He doesn’t. Well, unless integrity means something to Buhari supporters other than what it actually means in the English language

The judiciary nominates its CJN which is forwarded to the President for onward transmission to NASS.

They are free too, it is a corrupt community whose number 1 Lawyer President is also being accused of corruption after rigging the election that made him NBA president by depriving many lawyers from voting. Just like everything in this country corruption has inflitrated deep into its heart. The earlier PMB understands criminals never make pro-legal laws the better he can confront the criminality in the system.

Guess the same way the DSS violated judges personality & houses in Gestapo fashion during the early days of this moribund APC regime only for none of them to be indicted let alone convicted.

Meanwhile OUK declared wanted by the court while he was away was curiously seen campaigning with a fellow criminal Oshiomole ystdy in Abia.

Continue the hypocrisy.Karma knows how best to serve us well.

A domiciliary foreign currency account is not the same as a foreign account.
you can have a foreign currency account in First bank.it is different from having account in lets say HSBC.
