Justice Danladi Umar never authorized the President of the country to suspend Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon Justice Walter Onnoghen in the so called Ex Parte Order as claimed by the President.
A perusal of the two orders as sighted by myself few hours ago showed that the first order to wit: Directed the CJN to step aside pending the conclusion of his matter before the Tribunal while the second order to wit: Ordered or directed the President (Muhammadu Buhari) to appoint the most senior Justice in the Supreme Court after the CJN to take over as the Acting CJN pending the determination of the case before the Tribunal.
- Where is the order to suspend embedded in this exparte order upon which our dear President acted upon?
- Can the President suspend a public officer purporting to act upon a court order when no such court order ever exists?
- Can the President appoint another Justice of the Supreme Court in an acting capacity when the first order has not been complied with to wit: the CJN stepping aside?
- Was this ex parte order ever served on the CJN who the order directed should step aside?
- If the ex Parte order was not served on the CJN who it directed to step aside, can the president validly then remove him based on the same order that was never served on him?
- Why was this said order served only on the president who apparently was not a party in the suit but who was expected to carry out the second order to wit: appoint a replacement, when the person that was supposed to step aside for the subsequent order to come into effect was not served?
- Has the government not shot itself terribly on the legs by this glaring irregularity that has occurred in EVERYTHING that has to do with this trial of the CJN before the Code of Conduct Tribunal?
Before evening I WILL LIKE TO ADDRESS THE ALLEGED CORRUPTION OF THE CJN AND HIS ADMISSION IN HIDING THESE ASSETS AND THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF HIS ALLEGED CULPABILITY.
THIS IS A FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS TO THE TEN QUESTIONS EARLIER ON ASKED BY MY GOODSELF ON THIS WALL.
