NBA tackles Buhari on CJN trial
January 13 17:01 2019 Print This Article

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has joined the rest of the world in condemning the planned trial of Mr.Justice Walter S N Onnoghen, the Chief Justice of the Federation by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.


In a statement signed the body president, Paul Usoro, NBA noted that the media trial
of the embattled chief justice does not
follow the rule of law, hence should be
stopped.


They also decried the manner the trial was been handled which they maintained did not follow laid down procedure and due process.


“We have in total a record number of 3
(three) working days between the
receipt and processing of the petition,
investigation, preparation of Charge
and ancillary processes and the
arraignment! Such unprecedented
speed and efficiency in Nigeria’s
criminal justice administration!

“It is clear, given the rush with which
this matter was conducted by the CCB,
that the NJC was not privy to it and did
not conduct its mandatorily required
disciplinary processes prior to the filing
of the Charge before the CCT” the NBA
said.

NBA says they unequivocally condemns the assault, intimidation, and desecration of the judiciary by agencies of the federal
government and demands that it
should be stopped immediately.
