Nigerian govt demands resignation of CJN Onnoghen

AGF Malami directs ICPC to hand over Katsina officials' trial to state govt

Aliu Umar, the Nigerian government prosecutor in the ongoing trial of Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen, said on Tuesday that the government wants the judge out of office.

Mr Umar, in his opening address at the resumed hearing in the matter, said Mr Onnoghen had been written, and wondered whether he had received it or not.

Mr Onnoghen was not present when the tribunal opened at 10:21 a.m.

Today’s hearing is the second since the matter first opened on January 14.

The Buhari administration accuses the CJN of failing to declare bank accounts despite being a Supreme Court judge since 2005, an offence that contracts the Code of Conduct Act and could see draw penalties if established.

Wole Olanipekun, a senior lawyer leading a team of over 50 defence counsels for Mr Onnoghen, said the judge was absent because of the cases that were instituted against the tribunal’s proceeding.

A federal high court ruled last week that Mr Onnoghen’s tribal be suspended, but government supporters have argued that the ruling was an anomaly because the tribunal has parallel powers as federal high courts.

They argued that only the Court of Appeal could issue rulings that would be binding on the tribunal.

The Court of Appeal fixed January 24 for hearing on the matter.

“It is a lie that no one has become poor by giving. Giving can make you rich, depending on who you give to.

For instance, you can never be poor if you give to God, your parents and the poor.

However, there are very many men who became poor by giving to girlfriends. A man has no obligation to look after his girlfriend.” He wrote.

Giving money to a girl you sleep with makes her more appropriately a prostitute, not a ‘friend’ #RenosNuggets
