Fayose To Buhari: CJN’s Trial Is Desperation Of A Rejected President

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has declared that

President Muhammado Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are

like the Biblical Saul that has been deserted by God, describing the

onslaught on the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter

Onnoghen as “one last show of desperation by a rejected President.”

He said; Those the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. This

sinking government taking on the CJN is desperation taken too far.

From Amina Zakari to the illegal plot to extend the Inspector General

of Police (IGP) tenure and now assault on the CJN, it is obvious that

God has departed from this government as He left the Biblical Saul.”

The former governor said the speed with which the petition against the CJN was acted upon

clearly exposed the sinister intention of the Presidency, asking; “how

is it explainable for a petition to be written on January 7, received

by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) on January 9 and charges made

against the CJN on January 11?”

He said: “Meanwhile, former Abia State Governor,  Orji Kalu who was

declared wanted by the court for jumping bail is everywhere

campaigning for the President and APC. Why didn’t the federal government

act swiftly in arresting Kalu like it acted on the petition against

the CJN?”

Describing the move to remove the CJN as part of the Presidency’s plot

to rig the February general elections, Fayose said; “the latest

onslaught on the CJN and by extension, the judiciary is a well

orchestrated plot to get a judicial soft-landing for the impending

rigging of the presidential election in particular and other elections

in favour of the APC.

“They are not unaware that the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) cannot

try a sitting judge, but are only out to use the arraignment as a

premise for asking Justice Onnoghen to step aside. In other words,

they are not really interested in trying him, they only want him out

and the moment he steps aside, nothing will be heard about the case


The former governor said President Buhari never wanted Justice

Onnoghen as CJN, adding that;  “He refused to send his nomination to

the Senate despite recommendation by the National Judicial Council

(NJC). If not for the circumstances that took the President abroad,

Onnoghen wouldn’t have become a substantive CJN.

“Therefore, moving against the CJN at this time is a clear sign of

what to come if President Buhari is reelected and Nigerians must be

resolute in their rejection of the President and his party on February
