APC Senators are not part of the suit submitted by Senate at the Supreme Court over Onnoghen’s suspension
APC Senators in the National Assembly has distance themselves from the suit submitted by Senate at the Supreme court over Onnoghen’s suspension
The number that made up APC in the Senate has actually distanced itself from the suit the Bukola Saraki led Senate submitted at the Supreme Court, asking the Appellate court to give an interpretation of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan exposed the position of the APC Senators in a declaration on Monday night, not long after the Senate stated it had taken the matter to the highest court in Nigeria, to get clarification.
Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the Senate went to court because it desires the Supreme Court to figure out whether President Muhammadu Buhari acted within the ambit of the constitution in his suspension of the CJN.
Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan faulted the action of the Saraki led Senate stating,
The Senate never met to take such resolution and at no time mandated anyone to approach the Supreme Court on this matter on its behalf. Consequently, the Senate APC caucus dissociates itself from the said request for the legal interpretation of the suspension
