Nigerians Storms Streets Of New York To Protest Against CJN Onnoghen 5

Nigerians resident in the United States of America on the platform of Restore Nigeria Coalition (RNC), has hit the streets of Washington to protest against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The group are seen bearing placards and chanting solidarity songs like ‘Sai Baba’. They described the suspension of CJN Onnoghen as a plus to the anti-corruption fight of President Muhammadu Buhari-led government and urged the Donald Trump-led government and the United Nations to support Nigeria’s president in flushing out corruption.

Cosmas Collins, President of RNC, speaking on behalf of the group, believes Nigeria has made tremendous progress in the anti-corruption fight as witnessed in the case of embattled Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen. He said:

“The recent case of the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen who violated the law in declaring his assets as stipulated by the law has further emphasized the level of rot in the system.”

“The bane of underdevelopment in Nigeria is as a result of the lackadaisical attitude of previous governments in the fight against corruption that has resulted in the wanton disregard for accountability and transparency in the conduct of government businesses and by extension governance in Nigeria.

“Since 2015 when the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari took over the affairs of the state in Nigeria, Nigeria has recorded tremendous progress in governance evident in the dividends of democracy trickling down the ladder.”

“We are through this medium soliciting for assistance from the United States and United Nation in the war against corruption in Nigeria as initiated by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in recent times.

The group further asked the international community to support President Buhari’s anti-corruption war.

Similarly, Nigerians in the United Kingdom have called on the government to see Onnoghen’s suspension as a “bold move to rid Nigeria of corruption”.
