A statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by the media aide to the CJN, Mr Ahuraka Isah, said the CJN was reacting to statements credited to some politically exposed persons, state governors and even lawyers who alleged bias in their reactions to outcomes of some governorship, National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal matters in the country. Some aggrieved politicians had also alleged that some of the verdicts were influenced by money and political pressure. The statement reads: “His lordship insists that the fight against corruption is a collective responsibility especially amongst public officials, particularly the state governors who are equally the chief security officers of their respective states. “He said it is not just enough to say the judiciary is corrupt or that that judge was bribed to deliver a judgement; at the same time look the other way while thugs enter courts to beat judges, tear court processes and bomb the courts to prevent the delivery of some judgements.]]>
