‘Don’t give Justice Tanko’s appointment religious colouration’

Tanko Muhammad performs first official assignment

The Kaduna State chapter of the Supreme Council for Shariah in Nigeria, (SCSN) has warned against giving the appointment of Justice Muhammad Tanko a religious colouration.

Justice Muhammad Tanko became the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) following the suspension of Justice Walter Onnonghen for non-declaration of his asset.

In a press conference led by its Chairman, Sheikh Sambo Rigachikun and the Secretary, Engr. AbdurRahman Hassan in Kaduna, the SCSN warned that further agitations against the suspension of justice Onnonghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) could polarize the fragile country, rather than uniting it.

The Muslim body also called on the South-South governors and the Coalition of United Political Parties, (CUPP) among others agitating over the suspension of Justice Walter Onnonghen to exercise absolute restrain and let justice prevail on the matter.

While urging the Federal government not to succumb to any form of pressure from ‘some quarters,’ that may amount to breakdown of law and order and do all it could within the constitutional provision to bury the issue, the Muslim body said it is expected of the National Judicial Council, (NJC) to discharge its duty at all cost by making appropriate decision against any judicial officer that is unfit and improper to be a judicial officer in the land, as the trust is on them.

They cautioned those attempting to give the appointment of Acting Chief justice,  Tanko Muhammad and other happenings in the judiciary a religious colouration to be mindful of the fact that; “it is a costly trend, it’s an ill wind that will blow no one good, in this country.”

According to SCSN: “It is disheartening that the same Senior Advocates that saw the suspension and removal of Justice Salami are now faulting the similar action against Justice Onnonghen. How can a Senior Advocate will degrade himself to think within the whim of his ethnicity and religious sentiment?  This is unfortunate.

“It is quiet fresh in our memory when the then President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Isa Ayo Salami faced the same fate of suspension and removal not on allegation if corruption from his side under the Jonathan’s administration, but because he tried in his own way to uphold justice, unfortunately it did not go down well with the then administration.

“It is a fact that the same administration also suspended the then CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi for whistle blowing on some missing funds.  Heavens did not fall. No any Muslim protested that his own was removed illegally, simply because he acted patriotically in favor of our dear nation,” the Muslim body recalled.

The council however urged all Muslims and the public in general, to be law abiding and pray fervently for peaceful coexistence in the country.
