CJN urges Nigerians to report corrupt judges

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice WALTER ONNOGHEN has given a fresh dose of leeway to Nigerians to report corrupt and other unprofessional conduct of judges  to the National Judicial Council.

Justice ONNOGEHEN said Nigerians should take advantage of the existence of the relevant institutions by reporting corrupt judges to them instead of smearing the image of the judiciary through making unsubstantiated allegations in the mass media.

A statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, AWASSAM BASSEY, said the CJN made this call in reaction to a newspaper publication in which a former Senator, UCHE EKWUNIFE, “accused the judiciary of robbing her of her mandate in the 2015 Anambra Central Senatorial Election through nullification”.

According to BASSEY, the CJN also warned politicians to desist from smearing the good image of the judiciary in the media, while also assuring law-abiding and hardworking judges that they had nothing to fear.
