Breaking: Senate Withdraws Supreme Court Case Against Onnoghen


The Senate on Monday withdrew its case before the Supreme Court seeking the judicial interpretation of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is coming just as 56 APC Senators also Monday approached the Supreme Court to challenge their inclusion in the suit.

The latest move by the Senate, according to a statement issued by the Media Adviser to the Senate President, Yusuph Olaniyonu, followed the intervention of the National Judicial Council (NJC) on the matter.
The upper chamber of the National Assembly has decided to give the NJC intervention a chance.
“The Senate has therefore decided to discontinue the case it filed in the Supreme Court. It should be noted that the case has been slated for hearing tomorrow.

“This decision also affirm the confidence of the Senate in the ability of the NJC to successfully and creditably resolve the issues”, the statement added.
