President Muhammadu Buhari has once again thrown a jab at Walter Onnoghen, former Chief Justice of Nigeria.
Buhari spoke about Onnoghen and his tenure as the CJN, which was marred by the exposure of not declaring all of his assets that led to his eventual removal and retirement.
Buhari, speaking while he hosted the Afenifere leaders, said he had to reluctantly deal with Onnoghen knowing that he failed to declare all of his assets as required by the constitution.
“I will tell you as Afenifere, that I had to deal, though reluctantly, with the former chief justice because there were millions of dollars, euros, not to talk of naira, which were not declared,” he said.
“I wonder what sort of conscience some of us have. How can you sit and preside and lock people up for years and even sentence some to death and yet you are not doing what the constitution says you should do by occupying that vital position?”
Buhari once again reiterated his promise to go after individuals who had looted the country’s treasury, asserting that he would recover stolen funds and properties within and outside the country.
