Femi Fani-Kayode, former Nigeria’s aviation minister, has reacted to the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen.
In a tweet by Fani-Kayode immediately after the suspension news broke the internet, he said Nigeria is dealing with a fascistic monster in Buhari.
He said for a president in a democratic setting to suspend a CJN is totally unacceptable, describing it as a breach of rule of law and an affront on the Nigeria constitution.
Read his tweet below:
“When I warned my friends in the opposition that we are dealing with a fascistic monster in Buhari they did not believe me, they laughed me to scorn and accused me of being an alarmist. Well I doubt they are laughing anymore.
“For a president in a democracy to suspend the CJN is totally unacceptable, a clear breach of the rule of law and the constitution and a manifest violation of the principle of separation of powers. If anyone thinks that we are practicing democracy in Nigeria that person needs to have their heads examined.
“The result of the February 16th election has already been determined and Buhari will declare himself president for life. I call on the Senate President and the Speaker of the House to stop playing games to show courage and to begin impeachment proceedings against Buhari. That is the only way to stop this man from totally destroying our country and leading us into a civil war that may never end.”
