Former aide to Dr Alex Ekwueme, Ben Onyechere, has described as worrisome conflicting judgments emanating from the judiciary, especially the recent one delivered by Justice Okon Abang on Abia, saying that the judiciary is on trial.
In a statement on Sunday, he said, “The judgments emanating from Justice Abang has clearly shown that a judge can be above the law.
The efforts of the current Chief Judge of Nigeria to sanitize the judiciary is unprecedented but not without negativity of some of the judges for which reason the Nigerian Judicial Council has sanctioned some judges.
“The Nigerian political space can be made or marred by confusing judgements such as been issued by justice Abang in Abia State and in other cases as we have seen where he deliberately ignored verifiable facts which are determinants and essentials that can directly and impartially interpret situations.
“In the past, people like justice Salami have been sanctioned for similar judgments in governorship matters and there should be no exceptions.”
