Members of the recently inaugurated election tribunal were constituted by Walter Onnoghen before he was suspended under controversial circumstances as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

The acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Muhammed, appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari, inaugurated 250 members of the presidential and national assembly elections tribunal on Saturday.
The presidential and the national assembly elections will hold on February 16.

Mr Buhari is seeking re-election for a second term. His main challenger is Atiku Abubakar, a wealthy businessman and former vice president of Nigeria.

Mr Onnoghen, who is facing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for alleged false declaration of assets, had announced his plan to inaugurate the tribunal. He was suspended a day before the inauguration.

The members of the tribunal “are the same, no difference,” the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Hadizatu Mustapha, told PREMIUM TIMES Sunday morning, when asked if the names of the inaugurated members were different from the ones constituted by the suspended CJN.

The opposition has accused Mr Buhari of paving way for the rigging of the forthcoming elections, with the suspension of Mr Onnoghen.

Both Mr Onnoghen’s suspension and the inauguration of the tribunal by the acting CJN, Mr Muhammed, have been rejected by the opposition and several Nigerians who are concerned about the independence of the judiciary and the fate of constitutional democracy in the country.

There have been calls for the impeachment of President Buhari.

As long as the Nigerian Laws are concerned, no elections tribunal members were inaugurated, whether Onnoghen nominated them or not.

The Sharia clown can continue wasting his time, until he's put in his place soonest.

No matter how much we hate Buhari, let's not forget the fact that a Chief Judge has billions of naira in his account that he supposedly forgot to declare?

Why is no one talking about this?

Conclusion: Nigeria can never be better.

Official or not official, it doesn't change the fact that the FG acted unconstitutionally in suspending the CJN. If this dictatorial approach to governance isn't curbed and terminated ASAP, other future presidents will follow the same route in usurping the powers of the NASS and Judiciary without regards for the rule of law and our constitution.

Foolish Nigerians are not concerned that a civil servant failed to declare billions worth of asset. They are rather concerned that an erring officer was not appropriately removed forgetting that he was manipulating the legal system to his advantage.

I know he won’t be reinstated no matter what. So we all can put this CJN wahala to rest and move on to the next wahala or controversy.

If a thief steals something from you and you are so sure of your accusation, Will you go to the Police to arrest the thief or will you arrest him yourself..?

His account has been frozen since last year July, according to the order signed by the president himself. Why are they only making momentum of the case now? The CCT Chairman Danladi Umar, also has a pending corruption case with EFCC, what has been done about it..?

There’s an Extradition order against Diezani, why has it not been enforced? The UK Government will not permit harassment of their citizens without due process.


It is not the accusation that is being faulted, It is the mode with which it is being carried out.
