Pan Niger Delta Development Forum, PANDEF, a body of traditional rulers, leaders and stakeholders of the region, has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
PANDEF in a statement on Sunday by the National Secretary, Dr. Alfred Mulade, also called on the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, to boycott the Courts “until this illegality is reversed.”
It said Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad should be sanctioned by the National Judicial Council, NJC, for his willful participation in this ‘coup’ against the office of the CJN and the Nigerian constitution.
PANDEF also asked courts should not sit until Justice Muhammad is barred from parading himself as the CJN and Honourable Mr. Justice Walter Onnoghen promptly reinstated.
The statement added: “The National Assembly should pass a resolution condemning this violation of the Constitution and to ensure that it is reversed with immediate effect.
“The NASS is now at a particular unique junction at this time of our history, when we now face real issues of the Nation, which currently stands on the edge of precipice. She has the legislative empowerment, as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), to take the necessary actions that can reverse this ugly trend.
“Well-meaning Nigerians irrespective of political divide should rise against this monumental absurdity of the century until it is reversed”.
