A civil society group, Coalition for Change has called on the embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen to resign over his trial over non-declaration of asset.
This was confirmed in a statement by the group’s President, Patriot Sabo Odeh in Abuja on Wednesday.
The group expressed shock at the manner the opposition has reacted despite an obvious violation of the Constitution and legislation.
“Nigerians have again been subjected to a spectacle of shame with the ongoing but needless controversy over the arraignment of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal over his alleged failure to properly declare his assets and operating foreign domiciliary bank accounts. We call the controversy a shame because it has exposed the sham in the constant agitation for a paradigm shift that some of our compatriots put up for show.
We have noted that the matter, which is glaringly an open and close case, since flagrant violation of the Constitution and legislation emanating from it have been established against Justice Onnoghen,” the group noted.
