The Presidency has applauded the judgment of Justice Onnoghen by the Code of Conduct Tribunal describing it as a major victory for the anti-corruption policy of the Buhari administration.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated this while reacting to the conviction of the suspended CJN in Abuja yesterday.
Shehu maintained that the decision of the tribunal showed that the outcome of the trial demonstrated clearly that the law was no respecter of persons, titles, social or political connections.
He pointed out that the conviction of Onnoghen would send a clear message that the dragnet against corruption would be spread widely to hold public officials accountable, whether they are politicians, judges, civil servants or holding positions of public trust.
