‘Impeach Buhari Now’ – Reactions Trail the Removal of CJN Onnoghen

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday suspended Walter Onnoghen, Chief Justice of Nigeria, following his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Though the president based his action on an order of the CCT, Nigerians from across the board have rejected it, questioning the president’s powers to unilaterally fire the CJN.

Leading the opposition to the move are Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Senate President Bukola Saraki, who asked Nigerians to rise against it.

Many on social media have also weighed in on the development, which has already birthed hashtags such as #ImpeachBuhari and #TyrantBuhari.

Check out some of the reactions below…
