Steve Sun is beginning to see the light of truth. Hear him:
”…. all of us who are minister in the temple of justice, must always guard against laying bad precedents …. The summary of my point being that whenever age old rules and/or norms are bent in order to suit a particular person or situation, it will almost always come back to haunt those who bent same!”

What does this statement say of Steve Sun’s inconsistency? Has he not now seen what we earlier saw? He had then thought it was all about Paul Usoro. We knew it was not about Paul Usoro. We knew before hand that more ugly scenarios were coming. We knew the Bar and Bench were under siege for political and selfish reasons. But, my learned friend, Steve Sun didn’t. He didn’t know Paul Usoro’s was to FIRST cow the Bar and clear the path in preparation for this final onslaught to destroy the judiciary and pocket both the bar and the bench.
Steve Sun had allowed his blind support for a candidate who lost an election that had come and gone to becloud his sense of proactive and pragmatic reasoning. Steve Sun didn’t and couldn’t see it coming. Now that it is here, Steve Sun is up from his slumbering state and has started shouting.
Thank God his eyes are open. But what a contradiction! Different strokes for similar scenarios! A clear case of quod approbo non reprobo (approbating and reprobating), which is not only legally unacceptable, but morally as well as reasonably deprecable.
May Steve Sun’s eyes remain open to the ridicule to which the rule of law is being subjected in the giant of Africa. Amen.
Meanwhile, with due respect to Steve Sun, advising the CJN to shun CCT is illegal. The CJN must follow due process of law in registering his objection to the premature trial before the CCT. He must not shun the CCT. Happily, he was in court today through his 47 SAN’s. And has just approached the Federal High Court for some reliefs.
