Nyesome Wike Alleges Plan By FG To Harass 200 Judges
Naija News recalls that the Federal government and Judiciary are still finding a way to resolve the issues surrounding the suspension of the Cheif Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen who was charged with false declaration of assets.
According to Wike, he had intercepted plans by the federal government to harass 200 judges who are not willing to cooperate with its administration.
The governor made this allegation on Sunday at the Greater Evangelism World Crusade in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
His words: “I intercepted a discussion by a minister of the federal executive council where he was telling a gathering that they are happy that they have dealt with the supreme court,” he said.
“The minister said the next set would be the court of appeal judges and the court judges. The minister said any judge that fails to cooperate will face trump up charges and compelled to resign.
“This APC Federal Government has gone to the Code of Conduct Bureau to get the asset declaration forms of 200 judges. Any judge that fails to follow their evil plot, will be harassed with false allegations and persecution.”
Calling on the church for prayers, the governor added that the federal government will generate false allegations to compel upright judges to resign from the bench.
“The Church should continually pray for the federal judiciary. The judiciary in Nigeria is under siege. If anything happens to the judiciary, our democracy is in trouble .
“The Church needs to pray for the judges to remain strong in the face of intimidation and harassment.”
