Immediate past Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has faulted the arraignment of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen on allegations of false and non- assets declarations.
He accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being too desperate to win the February election.
He said: “Those the gods wish to destroy, they 1st make mad.This sinking govt taking on CJN is desperation taken too far.From Amina Zakari to the illegal plot to extend the IGP tenure & now assault on the CJN,it is obvious that God has departed from this govt as He left the Biblical Saul.”

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has scheduled January 14 for the arraignment of Justice Walter Onnoghen, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), on allegations of false and non- assets declarations.
Mr Ibraheem Al-Hassan, the tribunal’s Head, Press and Public Relations, said this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.
He said the action was consequent upon an application filed by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to the Chairman of the tribunal.
Al-Hassan said the application was signed by Mr Ibrahim Usman and Mrs Fatima Ali on behalf of the bureau.
He, therefore, said the tribunal would commence the trial of the CJN on six-count charge as the service of summons had been effected on the defendant.
Reports say that the Anti-Corruption and Research Based Data Initiative (ARDI) filed the petition at the Code of Conduct (CCB) against Justice Onnoghen. Executive-Secretary of the organization, Mr Dennis Aghanya who made the copy of the petition available to newsmen last Saturday in Abuja, said the body had acted as a whistle blower.
Aghanya said the petition, which was filed on January 7, was an offshoot of a painstaking investigation into the dealings of the CJN.
The organisation was of the strong opinion that the allegations were weighty enough to compel an action against Justice Onnoghen.
The petition reads in parts: “we hereby petition you on suspected violations of the law and the Constitution of Nigeria by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, the Honourable Mr. Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen.
