Senator Ekweremadu who noted that the integrity of the Nigerian judiciary remained intact despite obvious constraints, said: “I consider the charges against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, His Lordship, Justice Walter Onnoghen as ill-advised and dangerous, especially after similar attempts at the leadership of the National Assembly failed.

“This is extremely dangerous for democracy and can only divide the country further as well as alienate us as country very low in upholding the rule of law and independence of the judiciary.

“I advice the Attorney General of the Federation to immediately withdraw the charges and apologise to the judiciary. We certainly can’t travel this road”.
