The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN)

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has faulted the decision by the Executive to insist on trying the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on allegation of non-asset disclosure

JUSUN urged the Executive to direct its complaints against the CJN to the National Judicial Council (NJC) as provided by the Constitution rather than deliberately working to discredit the Judiciary.

JUSUN’s President, Comrade Marwan Adamu, noted in a statement that the way the issue was being politicised, revealed that there was more to the case.

He warned against a repeat of the last mass arrest of judges by security agents, who at the end of the day, could not prove their allegations against the effected judges.

Marwan said: “Even if such offence is committed, that is not the process. The position is that since there is an Appeal Court judgement that said any serving judicial officer, who erred can only be prosecuted after the NJC has investigated and found him or her guilty, those behind this case should go to NJC.

“Most people are raising suspicion because of the timing of the general elections and also, the speed at which the petitioners filled the petition and the urgency with which the matter is being pursued.

“This has also shown that something is fishy. Also, we may wish to ask, when did the petitioner realised the anomalies.

“The CJN was appointed based on merit and not because he is from the South or anywhere in the country. So, any regional and political sentiment will only put the CJN on a bad light.

“The Judiciary, as an institution, has the capacity to handle the matter. Even though we recognise their concern, the rule of law must be observed.

“JUSUN is also watching and monitoring the development with keen interest and has put her members on red alert, not only on this matter, but on any other issue that has to do with the independence of the Judiciary.

“We are not in anyway shielding anybody, but the position of the law must be followed.

“We should also avoid a repeat of the scenario that played out recently where some of our judicial officers were embarrassed, arrested and prosecuted but in the end, they were found not guilty.”
