If anyone must leave office, it is Ganduje and not CJN

Former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and Bayelsa East senator, Ben Murray Bruce have reacted to the order given by President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government that Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen to vacate office immediately.

According to the federal government, the CJN breached of the provision of the Code of Conduct Bureau Act, by not declaring his assets.

On Monday January 14, 2019, the government will arraign the CJN before the Justice Danladi Yakubu led-Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja.
Speaking via twitter on Saturday, the former Aviation minister said the order is all part of a well-crafted script.

Buhari has directed the CJN to vacate his seat and prepare for arraignment on criminal charges on Monday. This is all part of a well-crafted script. The bitter truth is that democracy is dead in Nigeria.If anyone thinks that Buhari intends to leave power they need to think again.

Also dropping his opinion, the lawmaker said that if there’s anyone that needs to be pressured to leave his position, is Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, caught on video, allegedly collecting kickbacks from contractor and not the chief justice.

If the government wants to pressure anyone to resign then they should start with Governor Umar Ganduje and not CJN Walter Onnoghen.

Ganduje is guilty but patronised. Onnoghen may or may not be guilty but is persecuted. Double standards
