Femi Fani-Kayode, ranking member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, says President Muhammadu Buhari’s suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, is “totally unacceptable”.
He called on the legislature to begin impeachment process against the president.
“For a president in a democracy to suspend the CJN is totally unacceptable, a clear breach of the rule of law and the Constitution and a manifest violation of the principle of separation of powers. If anyone thinks that we are practicing democracy in Nigeria that person needs to have their heads examined.

“I call on the Senate President and the Speaker of the House to stop playing games to show courage and to begin impeachment proceedings against Buhari.
“That is the only way to stop this man from totally destroying our country and leading us to a civil war that may never end,” Fani-Kayode said.
He also alleged that Buhari was plotting to declare himself the winner of the presidential elections on February 16.
