The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has hailed the judgment handed to former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen,  by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), describing it as well-deserved.

Onnoghen was found guilty of false declaration of assets, Thursday, subsequently barred from holding public office in the next 10 years.

In a chat with Daily Independent, Sagay said the punishment would send a strong signal to other corrupt judges and other public officials that it was no longer business as usual under the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“It is well-deserved and it has established the point I made from the beginning, when this case first started, that nobody is above the law.

“This will be a warning to everybody, in the judiciary and other sectors of public service, that this country is not a lawless entity. A Daniel has come to judgement.”

Meanwhile, Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, said it was not surprised by the verdict.

Yinka Odumakin, the group’s national publicity secretary, however, said it was not the end of the road for Onnoghen.

“Well, I don’t think anybody can be surprised at the verdict passed on Onnoghen today. If you listened to his counsel, such as Wole Olanipekun, Awomolo, and others have all expressed serious reservations about the way they were going about the whole business.
