The National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiohmole, has warmed foreign countries trying to meddle in the affairs of Nigerian politics that Nigeria is an independent country, and requires no input from any country when it comes to Nigeria’s internal democracy.
He was reacting to the reactions of the international community to the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, at the State House, Abuja during a dinner between APC senators and aspirants with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oshiohmole dismissed any form of foreign outcry against the action taken on CJN’s case, saying that Nigeria was not a colony.
He said Nigerians must defend the supremacy of the country, adding that corrupt justices were being prosecuted across the world.
Also speaking on the suspension of the CJN, Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan, said it was wrong for the Senate to reconvene over the matter as there were many cases in courts challenging or supporting the suspension.
He, however, stated that the Senate could reconvene to consider the 2019 budget proposal and the Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and Fiscal Strategic Paper.
Meanwhile, Senators under the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) met with President Muhammadu Buhari on yesterday to discuss how to handle the latest moves by PDP members in the Uppper Legislative who were making suspicious moves to paint President Muhammadu Buhari black
Though it seemed that full details of the meeting were not revealed, but it was learnt that the National Chairman of APC described it as “nice meeting”.
“Basically, the meeting was for the President to meet with the caucus of the Senate and the incoming senators by the grace of God.
“The whole idea is for the president to have a direct interaction with the senators and the senatorial candidates of the APC so that they will work hard and ensure that on the basis of one-man, one-vote, the outcome of the 2019 elections will be in our favour.
“This is an opportunity for some of the senatorial candidates to meet with the president for the first time.’
