The situation of our Nation is getting more complex by the day. It makes me laugh and feel sorry for my dear Nation.
The CJN is corrupt we all agree to that. But what will you do when the man was smart enough to unilaterally suspend the proceedings of the only council that can suspend him?
To form a proper opinion on P resident Muhammadu Buhari’s action against the CJN, I’ll recommend to solicitors & advocates of ‘corrupt judges,’ a book i read some time back. Its titled,’NATURAL JUSTICE’. written by Ken Binmore. The book created basis for whats i called “science of morals.”
The author, a mathematician with deep interest in philosophy, used game theory as a systematic tool for investigating ethical matters. He hinged natural justice of ‘duty to act’ on evolutionary rational decision-making, where empathy for one another may exist between individuals.
By suspending Onnoghen, Buhari has moved the ‘pawn’ piece to the end of the chess board, and has replaced it with a ‘queen.’
In law, ‘if its not stated, it can’t be inferred.’ If its not stated that the president cant ‘suspend’ the CJN, then it can’t be inferred that Buhari can’t.
Jonathan followed same route. Ayo Salami’s offense wasn’t as bad as this. GEJ suspended him and heaven didn’t fall. He was not only suspended self, he sacked him and refused to allow him to his seats even after winning the case in court.
The poetic justice in Onnoghen’s travail is the fact that CCT acquired an unappealable jurisdiction, precedent on a judgement Onnoghen gave, upon which an order for an ‘administrative action’ was issued. Smart!
Trailer drivers driving against traffic on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, is akin to Onnoghen’s case, a problem our constitution didnt envisage – so to say. It doesn’t look like there’s a law governing their actions. Its unheard that a truck driver was jailed for causing loss of lives.
On my way to Lagos from a journey last week , i arrived somewhere before Ogere and i saw a logjam of trailers, head to head, on the lane going to Ibadan. Not long after, i started seeing trailers heading in d direction of Ibadan at top speed, on our lane in the direction to Lagos.
Vehicles facing Lagos manoeuvre off from the asphalt into the bush each time we sight these trucks on dare-devil approach. Tanker drivers caused dents on people’s cars, with threats to beat up such car owners. We finally arrived at a hold-up, where we about 2hrs.
Trouble started when a Dangote Cement branded truck ripped off a lady’s car bumper, with its tyres. The female motorist got off with two other females, demanding that the truck driver should come down to see the damaged he has caused. He got of from his truck and a fight ensued.
These ladies dresses were torn. Their bags thrown into the bush. The trailer drivers even pulled daggers. We scampered to get them to safety. Some people were asking the women to charge the drivers to court for assault, in the bush, at about 9pm. T’was like referring CJN to NJC.
It was poetic justice when soldiers clearing way for their own movement arrived. Merely sighting d battered women amongst many men, slap that can break neck started flying. Circled by these soldiers, i was afraid these drivers would die from gun butt they received on their chest.
These drivers raised N100,000 from nowhere, with the soldiers insisting the torn dresses must be paid for too. Long & short, the assaulted women left with N150,000. Isn’t this unlawful? Many of us left d place agreeing, sometimes, we need to help the law, where d law is helpless.
