The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has lashed out at PDP’s presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku,Stands on suspension of CJN Onnoghen. as a classic example of self-incrimination..
Strange that you would choose to depict the current situation so inaccurately as to stir emotions unduly. You claim that CJN Onnoghen has been removed. However, this is not so. He has been temporarily suspended. You and your advisors should know and recognize the vast legal difference between “suspension” and “removal.”
What has been done is to have the CJN temporarily get out of his chair so that the serious matters against him can be heard by someone other than himself.
Yet, Atiku now cries the anguished cry of a man who thought he had won the lottery only to find he had misread the last number on his claim ticket. Or perhaps these are the tears of a man who thought he had invested in a sure deal only to see the reason for the investment evaporate before his very eyes. Now, Atiku and his cohort seek to turn their personal disappointment into a burning national issue. They seek to manufacture a constitutional crisis where none exists.
