Omokri reacts as CCT bans Onnoghen from holding public office, confiscates funds

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, judgement against the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen, over alleged non-asset declaration.

DAILY POST had reported that the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Thursday in its judgement banned Onnoghen from holding public office for 10 years.

It also removed Onnoghen from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria, and chairman, National Judicial Council, NJC, In his judgment, chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar said the monies in the affected five bank accounts were acquired illegally, particularly as Onnoghen was said to have not proved his source of income for the seized monies beyond all reasonable doubts.

But reacting, Omokri, in a tweet on Thursday, said Onnoghen was convicted because he is not a member of the APC.

According to him, ”ONNOGHEN convicted and banned from public office by the @Buhari administration. MAINA reinstated, then given double promotion and armed guards by the same Buhari government.

”Under Buhari, when EFCC see the broom they pass over to the next non @OfficialAPCNg member.”
