This tragedy surrounding #Onnoghen did not unfold in a vacuum. The law may be technical sometimes but it is important to note that it gives cognisance to the surrounding facts and circumstances -
n this case, we must never forget how this started.

A private citizen with close ties to @MBuhari obtained the CJN’s 2014 and 2016 asset declaration forms.

This is clear conflict of interest, and asking how Dennis Aghanya obtained the CJN’s asset declaration is relevant.
The speed at which things moved after Aghanya’s involvement, within 5 days, investigation was done, charges were brought. Again, asking how is relevant.

Since then the focus has desperately been on getting the CJN out of the way, just as election tribunals are to be constituted.

I doubt it.

The CCB did nothing about the CJN’s alleged misconduct in 2017 and in 2018. It was only after he went to PH to declare open the National Industrial Court Complex there that government magic started to happen.


I don’t think so.
If the case is so clear against the CJN, why the blatant trial by media?

Why is there no adherence to the Constitution if he must be removed?

Is it really that difficult to prove judicial “misconduct” when the President has the monopoly of coercive and investigative powers?
@MBuhari doesn't need to wait for the NJC to give him findings of misconduct against the CJN.

He can use the CJN's being Chair of the NJC as a basis to plead his possible conflict of interest and ask @officialEFCC, @PoliceNG, NFIU, @cenbank, DSS (take your pick) to investigate.
@MBuhari only has to deliver an address to @NGRSenate.

If that address contains evidence of “misconduct”, the Senate has no choice but to constitute a committee to investigate, verify and report urgently.
The CJN, as soon as the matter is in the Senate, will be duty-bound to suspend himself and step aside. Every right-thinking person will tell the CJN to respect himself and stay at home pending investigation.
If the Senate likes they can take forever to deliberate on the President’s address; but the CJN will not be on seat meanwhile. It’s that simple.

But, no! The sly people who run the Byzantine court around the President must show their true colours.
Michael Okpara said, “First time no be fool; second time na proper foolish”. Buhari’s handlers have no iota of respect for their Principal, not to talk of Nigerians. So also is it apparent that there is not a jot of self-awareness or emotional intelligence inside the Villa.
If there were, this tragedy, designed simply to continue to wield raw power and enjoy its many sinecures, would never have been allowed to see daylight.

As for Justice Tanko, wait until they start playing his mp3…
