The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce, has reacted and also condemned the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
Narrating his reason for suspending the CJN, President Buhari said he suspended Onnoghen, following an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, asking him to wield the big stick.
Mr. President had on Friday suspended Onnoghen and immediately appointed Tanko Mohammed as acting CJN.
In a speech released to Daily Post, Buhari said the order demanded that the CJN be suspended depending the determination of his ongoing trial as the tribunal.
CJN Onnoghen’s suspension has sparked up so many reactions from Nigerians on social Media.
However, Sen. Ben Bruce has described the suspension of Onnoghen as illegal.
The lawmaker revealed that the suspension was sponsored by ‘Cabals’ to stop Onnoghen from constituting Election Petition Tribunals.
Ben Bruce wrote, “The suspension of CJN Onnoghen is illegal. Period.
“Any pretender allowing President Buhari and his cabal to deceive him into believing that he’s the new CJN will soon be undeceived.
“It’s the cabal’s coup to stop Onnoghen constituting Election Petition tribunals.”
