Ex CJN approaches court to appeal tribunal judgement

By Bukola Olasanmi

Embattled former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnighen, has approached the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, to set aside the judgement of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, which convicted him of non-declaration of his assets.

Apart from being convicted, he was also barred from holding public office for 10years.

In his appeal, filed shortly after the tribunal judgment, the retired CJN raised 16 grounds of appeal.

According to him, through his counsel, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, senior advocate, said the tribunal erred in law when it dismissed the motion challenging the jurisdiction of the of the lower tribunal and therefore occasions miscarriage of justice.

Awomolo said the tribunal erred in law and acted out of jurisdiction when it ordered that the assets of the appellant be confiscated and therefore occasioned miscarriage of justice.

He asked the court to set aside the judgement of the tribunal and declare that the tribunal unal lacks the powers to entertain the case.

No fate has been fixed for the hearing of the appeal.
