Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration has no regard for the Judiciary including the electoral body- the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Moghalu, the presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), said that the present government has attacked the judiciary in a constitutional coup d’etat and does not respect the independence of any institution, including INEC. The YPP presidential candidate made this statement during the 70th Anniversary of the Nigerian Tribune titled: “Unveiling of the New Look Tribune” held at Sheraton Hotels, Lagos.
Commenting during the event on a theme: “Electoral Integrity, Legitimacy of Democratic Institutions and Good Governance,” Moghalu said he was afraid for INEC and cannot say he has faith in them, until they do the right thing after the elections are concluded. He said: “Well, INEC would have to demonstrate its effectiveness and its impartiality. And we can only see that after the elections have been conducted and concluded.
I cannot say that I have faith in INEC until I see them do they right thing. But I can only hope that they do the right thing. And when they do the right thing, then we would all applaud their competence and credibility. “Given what is happening in the country now, especially the attacks on the independence of institutions around the country, we are all afraid for INEC. This government does not respect the independence of any institution.
This government has attacked the judiciary in a constitutional coup d’etat. “Who is INEC compared to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen? We have all seen what is happening. If this government can do what it did to Onnoghen, then how much more what they can do to INEC during the elections.?”
