Deputy Senate President, DSP, Ike Ekweremadu

As the nation focuses on possible developments at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, this Monday morning, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has urged the Federal Government to withdraw the charges against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

He also asked the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to apologise to the nation’s judiciary.

Ekweremadu stated this in the series of posts on his Twitter handle, @iamekweremadu, in the early hours of Monday.

He described the charges as extremely dangerous for the nation’s democracy.

He also emphasised the need to eschew every form of intimidation against other arms of government, especially their leadership.

He said this would enable them to play their constitutional roles in the overall interest of the nation.

The Senator noted that the integrity of the Nigerian judiciary remained intact despite obvious constraints.

He said, “I consider the charges against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, His Lordship, Justice Walter Onnoghen as ill advised and dangerous, especially after similar attempts at the leadership of the National Assembly failed.

“This is extremely dangerous for democracy and can only divide the country further as well as alienate us as a country very low in upholding the rule of law and independence of the judiciary.

“I advise the Attorney General of the Federation to immediately withdraw the charges and apologise to the judiciary. We certainly can’t travel this road”.
