Onnoghen suspension: AIED dismisses Buhari’s action as illegal, desecration of democracy


The Advocacy for Integrity and Economic Development (AIED). Friday, described the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen as a grand illegality and desecration of the garment of democracy.

It also likened the development to the historic Hitler’s Armageddon, saying, it must be stopped.

AIED Director of Publicity, Comrade O’Seun John in a statement said the suspension of the head of Nigerian judiciary should be protested not just by every member of the Nigerian Body of Benchers but all patriots who hold dear the continuous existence of Nigeria.

He stated, “The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, today, unveiled fully his true personality after years of dilly dally and pretence as a reformed dictator. Muhammadu Adolf Buhari Hitler today, showed to the entire world that he is nothing but a despotic totalitarian who would not mind dragging every institutions of the Nigerian State down to win a reelection.

“Today, we have seen a man who gets blood rush in illegality, spits on the pages of our hallow constitution and kicks our sacred laws which forms our identity.

“The Nigerian Judiciary which is the only institution of state left with sanity is under siege. Our nation has been kicked off the cliff and going on a free fall, we are in trouble!

“The illegal suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria is not only alien to every fibres of our laws but distasteful and an unforgivable violation of the core spirit and principle of separation of power.

“We hereby call on all members of the Nigerian Body of Benchers and patriots across the world to stand up against a new Adolf Hitler that has found home in Nigeria. We call on every world leaders to stand up for the Nigerian people at these moment of tribulation and help end this reign of absurdity,” the statement read”.
