Senior Media Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Sheu Garba, has said that the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari is a settled matter.

He said the step taken by Buhari was appropriate as even the person involved had admitted to the offence.

In an interview on ‘Channels Television’, Garba said, “It’s a settled matter. I am not even sure that investigation is warranted in this circumstance, because there’s an admission’/ Our laws should be allowed to work, the President acted upon the directive by a court of law recognized by our own constitution, therefore, the President has done no wrong’.

“It’s wrong to see this (Onnoghen’s suspension) as political intimidation of anyone. The President needs not to intimidate anyone because in any case, he has no case before any judge. Nigerians are just concerned that President Buhari is not doing this in a very nice way. Are we concerned about nicety or doing the right thing?

“Those people who are saying that we are drifting into dictatorship, they have fallen into amnesia. They have forgotten what actually dictatorship is.”
