El-Rufai Blasts South South Governors For Defending CJN, Onnoghen

One of the most painful things I have experienced in the last two weeks from the statements from the governors of the South South justifying that non-declaration of assets is a non-issue because the Chief Justice of Nigeria is from the South South. This is the sort of things we see. Wrong is Wrong, Right should be right” he said

Reacting to VP Osinbajo’s claim that President Buhari did not know of the prosecution of the CJN until Saturday January 12th, Governor El-Rufai replied

”Why should he know about it? Let us stop this personalizing of institutions. Why should the president know about the prosecution of anyone? Wouldn’t you be worried if the President knows about every prosecution. Institutions should be allowed to work. I am the governor of Kaduna state. The constitution requires I declare my assets before being sworn in and the constitution stated it in very plain language.

Saying that the President doesn’t know is a compliment. It shows that he doesn’t interfere” he said
