Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has criticized the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen for his absence in court yesterday.
Onnoghen was suspended by the president for failure to declare his assets.
The tribunal earlier ordered daily hearings of Onnoghen’s trial which has been ongoing but did not hold yesterday, as the CJN gave excuses of developing toothache and high blood pressure.
Reacting, Onochie in a tweet, challenged the Chief Justice to take his medications and appear before the court for his trials.
“Onnoghen absent from CCT over a toothache, high blood pressure, just take your pills and stop insulting our legal system, you were fine till now.” She said.
“Ordinary Nigerians who have more than toothache & blood pressure come to courts to answer for their alleged crimes.
