Groups in support of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi in the forthcoming general elections have unequivocally condemned Federal Government’s plan to arraign the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Speaking exclusively to News Express Monday night on phone, the National Coordinator of Atiku Political Vanguard (APV),  Comrade Lucky Futughe, said his group, in collaboration with the other support groups of the former Vice President of Nigeria and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) considers the planned arraignment of the nation’s head of judiciary on trumped up charges as a step by the Buhari’s administration towards rigging the elections in favour of the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “Buhari and his party, APC, have perfected plans to rig the forthcoming general elections in their favour. The proposed arraignment of the CJN is just one of the rigging strategies. They want to cow the judiciary just as they did everything within their power to silence the legislature earlier on. This is nothing but a coup by the executive against the other two arms of government. We are not going to give them the freedom to rob our principal, the Waziri Adamawa, of his smooth ride to Aso Rock together with his vice, Mr Peter Obi.”

Speaking further, Futughe said his group has concluded mobilisation of all the other support groups to stage a protest march across the country during the week.

“Nigerians are in total support of the Atiku/Obi ticket. This is buttressed by the many groups that have endorsed the Atiku/Obi ticket. APV is in the forefront of mobilising not just the support groups, but all well-meaning Nigerians to resist this political robbery planned by Buhari’s administration. Nigerians have suffered enough. Buhari has failed the nation. We must allow Atiku to come in and get Nigeria working again. Nothing must happen to the CJN. We say NO to Buhari and APC gimmicks to rig the general elections. We are ready to go on the streets during the week across the country to protest this government's series of illegalities,” said Futughe.
