Buhari not aware of CJN Onnoghen’s trial – Osinbajo

Vice president Yemi Osinbajo reacting to Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, case with Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) stated that Buhari only got to know about the case on Saturday.
He expressed this at a one-day conference organised by Online Publishers Association of Nigeria in Nigeria on Wednesday
Osinbajo also expressed disappointment in the ongoing trial of the National President of Nigerian Bar Association, Paul Usoro (SAN) by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on account of payments received from Akwa Ibom governor for job.

“It is highly regrettable that the CJN has to go through this process but Buhari had issued specific instructions that anti-graft institutions be allowed to do their job without any interference. He did not even know that there was going to be any kind of trial until Saturday evening,” Osinbajo said.
“He has said categorically that there shouldn’t be interference with whatever the institutions are doing. Sometimes, it has consequences such as we have today, such that people say how can such an important person be subjected to trial without the Federal Government, but I can tell you without any equivocation that he was not aware.
“I must tell you in clear terms that for President Muhammadu Buhari, his whole approach is that institutions should just do their work. I can tell you for a fact that he did not even know about this until Saturday evening.”

“It is important that self-regulation is robust enough to prevent a situation where government or formal establishment passes laws and actually think that there is need to regulate. I think once self-regulation is robust enough, it easier to make a case that we should not have government regulation.”

    What happen if the President is aware of the trial and what does that have to do with the Justice system of our country? no matter whom you are , no one must be bigger or above the law of a Country, if you can stand the heat get out of the kitchen period, Saraki most in my opinion got away with murder, he installed himself the Senate President, what follows demonstrated our shame and how we uphold our democracy, if people believes they are above the law or untouchable they must not be given a space in our Politics.
