Atiku Abubakar has accused ‘General’ Muhammadu Buhari of ruling like a military dictator with the way he handled the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
He said the act is a continuation of a “pattern of executive lawlessness” that’s exactly how a military dictator behaves.
“The serial disregard of court orders, and consequent violation of constitutionally guaranteed human rights of our citizens confirms beyond all doubt that General Buhari and his government would rather obey their own whims and operate by separate rules outside the well-established constitutional order and the rule of law.
“It scarcely requires emphasis that this behavior is alien to democratic rule and more in line with that of a military dictator,” he said.
He noted that despite the importance of fighting corruption, like the president claims, it’s also important to religiously follow the rule of law so as not to pave the way for tyranny.
