An associate of the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, and former spokesman of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, says Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are plotting to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state, in a statement sent to DAILY POST on Tuesday, said the opposition was set for a showdown with the executive over the suspension of former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.
He noted that the recent comments by PDP leaders calling for actions against the country and law abiding citizens, including threats of war and possible overthrow of government, are not only acts of treason against the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but a sin against God and humanity.
Eze pointed out that Justice Onnoghen was only suspended, as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction, pending the determination of a criminal charge of corruption filed against him, noting further that it would have amounted to more acts of corruption if the erstwhile chief law officer would be allowed to sit much longer as a judge in his own matter.
He said: “Besides, Mr. President made a shocking disclosure that millions of dollars was traced to the accounts of the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen which he refused to disclose as obtainable in the law.
Although the allegations in the petition are grievous enough in themselves, the security agencies have since then traced other suspicious transactions running into millions of dollars to the CJN’s personal accounts, all undeclared or improperly declared as required by law.
