Justice Onnoghen: APC Senators Drag Saraki to Supreme Court

Justice Onnoghen: APC Senators Drag Saraki to Supreme Court

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Caucus in the Senate has filed a suit at the Supreme Court, against the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, with regards to the suit he earlier filed over the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The media reported yesterday that Saraki withdrew the case from the Supreme Court as a result of the intervention of the National Judicial Council, NJC.

Saraki had approached the apex court to seek interpretation of the suspension of Onnoghen as CJN by President Buhari.

Not withstanding the discontinuation of the matter by Saraki, senators of the ruling party have gone to the Supreme Court to challenge the Senate President.

The Senate leader, Ahmad Lawan pointed out that the decision to go to court was arrived at during the meeting of the senators on Monday.

Lawan, in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Abuja, said the APC, which has 56 members, is challenging the said suit and has vehemently objected to the inclusion of its members.
