South-South Governors Seek Dignified Exit For Onnoghen

The South-South Governors may have resolved to intervene in the resignation saga of the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The Governors intend to meet President Muhammadu Buhari with a view to persuading him to accept Onnoghen’s resignation letter.

Buhari is yet to act on the letter or the recommendation of the National Judicial Council, NJC, that the CJN be compulsorily retired.

Onnoghen turned in his letter 24 hours after the NJC met and decided that he had to go having lost the moral authority to continue as CJN with the litany of allegations bordering on misconduct against him.

The majority of the South-South Governors have bought the idea of intervening in the Onnoghen matter.

It was also learnt that Onnoghen actually attempted to negotiate his exit with three conditions before the NJC advised the President to retire him.

The presidency rejected the Onnoghen exit conditions and opted to see his trial through at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
