The National Judicial Council (NJC) has called an emergency meeting this morning. Quorum is 8 of the 24 members.
Our Ask: Do not acknowledge Tanko as the acting CJN.
Fastrack any petition against #CJNOnnoghen before you.
@NigBarAssoc Exco also meets today.
Our Ask: Decisive action against "procurers" of the ex parte order @MBuhari acted upon given the discrepancy in dates & omission of counsel who argued the motion as required by law. Also, how does the NBA restore its image?
@NigBarAssoc @MBuhari @nassnigeria meets tomorrow.
Our Ask: Resolution standing on the constitution:
* Acting CJN not recognized
* @MBuhari should reverse the order.
We don't need a constitutional crisis.
Some lawmakers could move for impeachment to reflect the gravity of the matter.
@NigBarAssoc @MBuhari @nassnigeria Update: The Code of Court Tribunal today adjourned the trial of #CJNOnnoghen, indefinitely, pending the determination of suit challenging the trial at the Court of Appeal.

Update: Justice Onnoghen & Tanko Mohammed have 7-working days to respond to petitions against them to the NJC.

NJC referred CCT Chairman’s case to Federal Judicial Service Commision.

Onnoghen was asked to respond to allegations leveled against him, especially why he failed to declare all his assets, as stipulated by law.

Justice Mohammed was asked to explain why he allowed himself to be sworn-in by President Muhammadu Buhari without the recommendation of the Council, as stipulated by the Constitution.
