BREAKING: Onnoghen: Senate Approaches Supreme Court, Suspends Plan To Reconvene by Blacksodje(m): 6:55pm On Jan 28, 2019
The Chamber of the Nigerian Senate
The Nigerian Senate has filed a case at the Supreme Court to seek clarification on the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

Relying on an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), President Muhammadu Buhari last Friday suspended the chief justice replacing him with another Supreme Court justice, Tanko Mohammed.

On Monday, the Senate approached the apex court seeking its interpretation on whether President Buhari acted within the provision of the constitution in his suspension of Mr Onnoghen.

The Senate also wants the court to determine whether the action of the president does amount to usurpation of the powers of the Senate as provided for in Section 292 of the constitution.

The section states conditions for removal of a chief justice but fails to clarify the difference between temporary removal and permanent removal.

“Following the filing of the case, the matter of the suspension of the CJN which is the main issue for which the Senate had planned to reconvene tomorrow, has become subjudiced,” a statement signed by Yusuph Olaniyonu, media aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki says.

“Therefore, in line with the standing rules of the Senate not to debate issues that are already pending before the court, the reconvening of the Senate tomorrow has been put off. The previous adjournment of the Senate till February 19, 2019, stays

Buhari obviously thinks he is stubborn.

You are wrong Sir!

Come February, you will be defeated and heaven will not fall.

This is an impeachable office. Which senate resolution mandated saraki the Senate to approach the supreme court.
Saraki took the decision on his own. Senators must move against such usurpation of power

Good way to go not to play in the hands of the tyrant who is looking for a chaos that will be used as an excuse to shift the elections.

Buhari and his agbero supporters who have been expecting crises have been put to shame once more.

This is a masterstroke.The acting CJ cannot be a majority of 1 and whatever decision taken by the apex court must be obeyed.

The senate should be ashamed if Buhari scales through with this act.
This is a deliberate slap on the senate and on the constitution of Nigeria hence, the entire people of Nigeria.

But one thing I know is this: Buhari doesn't have the brain to do this, some people are using him to pursue their selfish interest.
The cabal and APC are the main players here and Nigerians would be foolish not to resist them and turn things around
