What Onnoghen’s prosecution means to us – South South governors

3

The South South governors have asked said that the intended prosecution of Nigeria’s Chief Justice, Walter Onnighen .is humiliating and unacceptable.

The governors took the stand in a meeting held on Sunday in Abuja, stating the present administration has done enough to assualt institutions like the National Assembly and Judiciary.

According to these South south governors, the region has been marginalized enough, and Onmoghen’s case, will be another huge blow.

The statement which was signed by Henry Seriake Dickson, Governor of Bayelsa State, the action against Onnoghen is further pointer to the perception that the Buhari administration has no regard for the sentiments of Nigerians, in particular the people of Niger Delta

We note that the attempt to drag the CJN to the CCT is also a grave and dangerous escalation of the assault on institutions of state, including the National Assembly and the judiciary.

Therefore, we consider this step, which is directly aimed at humiliating the nation’s highest judicial officer and a prominent son of the region,as totally unacceptable as it is reflective of the South South story of endless marginalization and intimidation.

The unceremonious removal of former Acting Director General of the Department of State Service, Mathew Seiyefa and his replacement is still very fresh.

We note that the unfortunate action against the CJN further reinforces the perception that the Buhari administration has no regard for the sentiments of Nigerians, in particular the people of Niger Delta, and the rule of law.

It is a fact that this administration has a penchant for flagrant disobedience of and disregard for legitimate and valid court orders.
