Onnoghen’s resignation: I can’t confirm if President Buhari is aware – Femi Adesina

President Buhari speaks on why he suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina says the presidency is yet to confirm if President Buhari is aware of the reported resignation of suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

There were reports yesterday that the embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria had tendered his resignation following allegations of non-declaration of his assets.

In an interview with Channels Television last night, Adesina said he cannot confirm at the time if President Buhari is aware of Onnoghen’s reported resignation. He said he read the news of the resignation online just like many other Nigerians.

“Is the President aware, I can’t say yet,” Adesina said.

He added that there have been no confirmation from the NJC or other relevant bodies about the resignation.

Speaking on whether the president got the report from the NJC asking that Onnoghen be retired immediately, Adesina said the papers had the report that the recommendations had been sent, however, the Attorney General of the Federation will be in the best place to give a confirmation.

“It is a judicial matter, and the Attorney General is the legal officer of the country, he will be privy to it,” Adesina said.
