President Muhammadu Buhari has been called on by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, to look inwards at his alleged stinking executive and stop the ill-treatment of Nigeria’s Judiciary.
Secondus stated this while reacting to the alleged attacks on the former Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Walter Onnoghen on Tuesday while hosting some Yoruba leaders at the Aso Villa.
Prince Secondus stated that President Buhari’s aversion for the judiciary is becoming very apparent, dangerous and antithetical to democratic norms.
The PDP chairman stated that the endless attacks on the Judiciary by the President especially last Tuesday’s narration of his so-called ordeal with the courts is a strategy to cow them into submission to his undemocratic desires.
Secondus stated this in a statement released through his media office and signed by Ike Abonyi.
He stated that the President pretends not to be aware of the source of wealth of his audience in the Judiciary because it favours his political interest.
“We all know it as a fact that the motive of the President in his countless berating of the Judiciary at the slightest moment is deliberately designed to frighten them, take away their confidence and force them to submit to his wishes by intimidation.”
Secondus stated that the president continues to ridicule the arm of government because they did not dance to his selfish tune at some point.
He called on the lovers of democracy in the country to rise up in defence of the Judiciary which is been attacked by the executive arm that seeks absolute power from the back door.
He noted that the double standards of President Buhari become visible when he berates the Judiciary and turns blind eye to the corruption in the executive arm.
He finally charged members of the Judiciary never to abdicate their responsibilities in the sustenance of democracy and refuse to be intimidated, but to insist on delivering justice in the land knowing that it is the only route to growth and development.
