Onnoghen: Democracy in danger, ADP presidential candidate warns

Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen

The Presidential candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) Yabagi Yusuf Sani has expressed concern over the news of purported charges against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, following a statement released on Saturday by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, on alleged failure of the CJN to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.

The ADP flag bearer in a statement he issued  on Saturday through the director of his campaign organisation, Pam Ibrahim, said “while we have no objection to probity of any government official, no matter how highly placed we question the timing of this aggression against the CJN and the onslaught on the Judiciary by the Presidency when elections are few days away.

“We call on Nigerians and the international community to intervene and save democracy.”
