‘The haste with which CJN Onnoghen’s trial is being pursued leaves a lot to be desired’ – Bukola Saraki

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen will be tried at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday, January 14th on a six count charge over his alleged failure to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.

 

Reacting to the hasty trial, Senate President Bukola Saraki who was once tried by the CCT has just said, ‘the proposed trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) has once again opened up the debate on the transparency and neutrality of this administration’s fight against corruption’.

 

Saraki added that, ‘the haste with which this trial is being pursued leaves a lot to be desired. From last Wednesday when the so-called petition against the CJN was initiated to the period the trial is scheduled to commence has been barely three working days’.
