South South Governors Rally Round CJN Walter Onnoghen

A caolation of  governors of Nigeria’s South-South states have come to the defence of Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen.

At an emergency meeting which held in Abuja on Sunday, January 13, the governors described the move to prosecute Onnoghen for alleged asset declaration infractions as vindictive and persecutory, and should be condemned by lovers of democracy.

Present at the meeting were Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, who chaired it at his guest house in Maitama, Abuja, Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Ben Ayade of Cross River and Udom Emmanuelof Akwa Ibom.

The meeting began at about 4:00 p.m. and ended with a communique shortly after 7:30 p.m.

Declining to take questions from reporters despite earlier promising in the announcement that there would be a press briefing after the closed-door meeting, the governors prevailed on Onnoghen not to appear when the trial opens at the tribunal on Monday, January 14

The Cross River-born Onnoghen is facing trail following a petition filed to the Code of Conduct Bureau by a civic group.
