The spouse of the President, Aisha Buhari, has denied the claim that she condemned the current suspension of troubled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
Mrs. Buhari, in an announcement delivered through her Director of Information, Mr. Suleiman Haruna, on Sunday in Abuja portrayed the news making rounds that she condemned Onnoghen’s expulsion as flase.
“The attention of wife of the President has been drawn to a post on social media to the effect that she condemned the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria.”
“It is important to inform Nigerians that wife of the President has not made any public statement on the matter and therefore, the commentary is untrue and fake.”
“This is highly condemnable and we therefore advise the purveyors of such news to recant and desist henceforth,” the announcement included.
The News Agency of Nigeria reviews that the previous CJN was suspended by the Federal Government coming after a suggestion of the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The suspension arrangement was carried out to empower the court to attend to & decide the charges of false property acknowledgment documented against Onnoghen by the Code of Conduct Bureau.
