Those the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad – Fayose, Shehu Sani react to Onnoghen’s case

Published

The Federal Government, has dragged Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, over allegations that he refused to declare his assets, slamming a six-count criminal charge against him.

Apart from alleged failure to disclose his assets as stipulated by law, the federal government has also accused the CJN of operating foreign back accounts in the charge filed by the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB.

However reacting to the report, former governor of Ekiti state, Ago Fayose has said that the move is out of sheer desperation. Fayose further added that the speed at which the petition was filed against the CJN , clearly shows that the ‘sinister intention of the Presidency.’

Those the gods wish to destroy, they 1st make mad. This sinking govt taking on CJN is desperation taken too far.

From Amina Zakari to the illegal plot to extend the IGP tenure & now assault on the CJN, it is obvious that God has departed from this govt as He left the Biblical Saul.

The speed with which the petition against the CJN was acted up clearly exposed the sinister intention of the Presidency. How is it explainable for a petition to be written on January 7, received by the CCB on January 9 and charges made against the CJN on January 11?

Also reacting is Kaduna central lawmaker, Shehu Sani. In his opinion he wrote that the idea to prosecute Onnoghen, was a wrongly bought idea.

CJN onnoghen;whoever sold the idea to the Government sold to them a powder of pepper in a pack of a snuff.
