CJN must face trial

Written by 

The ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) has insisted that Onnoghen must face trial at the CCT.

The APC, during a press conference on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, berated the PDP.

It stated, “While we would not want to be lured into discussing issues that are presently before the courts and for which any respectable political party hoping to hold positions of responsibility should restrain itself, we regret to suggest that the PDP’s attempt to hoodwink Nigerians into believing that there is a political motive behind the allegations brought against the CJN might itself be indicative of some unholy alliances.”

According to the APC, the likely affinity existing between the PDP and a section of the judiciary “is further accentuated by the non-appearance of Justice Onnoghen before the CCT on Monday in line with the suggestions made by the PDP governors from the South-South on Sunday.”

The APC  rejected what it called a “dangerous attempt to designate the CJN’s arraignment along ethnic and religious lines thereby trying to heat up the polity by evoking primordial sentiments.”

The party stated, “The CCT trial is a legal matter, let the law run its course. The CJN must go through the instrumentalities of the courts, more importantly as an institution he represents. Indeed, this is the true test of our constitution, rule of law and will deepen democracy.”

Meanwhile, the Coalition of United Political Parties on Monday hailed the ruling of a Federal High Court that restrained the CCT from proceeding with Onnoghen’s trial.

The coalition, in a statement by its first national spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, described the development as victory for democracy and rule of law.
