Onnoghen says he deserves an Apology from Federal Government - BellaNaija

The suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen, has demanded an apology for the way he was dragged to the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for allegedly failing to fully declare his assets.

According to Vanguard, following his suspension from office by President Muhammadu Buhari on January 25 based on the allegations levelled against him, Onnoghen said he deserves an apology since the government has failed to present any concrete evidence.

He described the exhibits presented by the Federal Government to back up the six count allegation as hearsay, irrelevant, and useless evidence.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government says its case against Onnoghen was not that he had huge funds in his accounts, but that he did not declare the accounts that have been in operation before he assumed his position as Chief Justice of Nigeria.

    If the whole show is just about his asset declaration then the man truly deserves an apology.

    because all you have to do at the point of suspicion is ask the man to declare is assets for clarity, but if it was that simple lawyers and accountants would not be making any money from frivolous cases.

    If was that simple – it would also be easier to find real criminals that stole their wealth.
