Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, a former presidential candidate for the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), has said that the suspension of the Chief Judge of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen is a violation of the Nigerian constitution.

President Muhammadu Buhari had suspended Onnoghen and immediately appointed Tanko Mohammed as acting CJN on Friday.
According to Buhari, he suspended Onnoghen following an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.
Reacting, Ezekwesili in a series of tweets said Buhari has “grossly abused the principle of Separation of Powers in our Democracy by failing to follow due process”.
She tweeted, There are only but a few Nigerians today that are not shocked and embarrassed at the case made against the CJN but come on, Mr. President @MBuhari, you have GROSSLY ABUSED the principle of Separation of Powers in our Democracy by FAILING TO FOLLOW DUE PROCESS. Reverse that ABUSE.
“You know what’s worse, @NGRPresident @MBuhari, it is the fact that observers of your usual nepotistic instincts could already predict where you were headed with the Judiciary. You DIVIDE your people too much by your words and actions. We have had enough of such poor Leadership.
“So, I advise the @NGRPresident to immediately reverse this constitutional violation and take the matter to the @NGRSenate so 2/3 of them can be consistent with their power of confirmation and sack. Do the right thing on this matter. Don’t truncate our Democracy. It was HARD won.”
