‘Buhari should accept Onnoghen’s resignation – Clarke


Chief Robert Clarke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to reject the resignation of Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria(CJN).

Justice Walter Onnoghen on Thursday sent his resignation letter to President Buhari.

Clarke reacted to Onnoghen’s resignation on Channels Tv on Sunday. He blamed Onnoghen for his present predicament, adding that a petition by the EFCC should have warranted Onnoghen’s resignation since February.

He further noted that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Government should be given credit for taking the head of the judiciary to a tribunal but warned that a rejection of Onnoghen’s resignation will ‘create heat wave in Nigeria politics’.

“What has created the situation that he (the CJN) has found himself today is the petition written by EFCC. That petition, he had a copy of it in February

“As at February, the CJN was aware of those charges labeled against him, at that stage when he got the EFCC’s petition, he should have resigned.

“The politicizing of the situation stopped Onnoghen from doing the needful at the time.
