Middle Belt Forum said the removal of Mr Walter Onnoghen as CJN had shown that President Muhammadu Buhari could not be trusted to uphold the nation’s constitution as he pledged.
MBF President, Mr Pogu Bitrus, who said this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, asked the President to reinstate Onnoghen or face rejection at the polls.
He said, “We call on him, having blatantly breached the constitution which he swore to uphold and his Oath of Office, to immediately resign.
“In the event of his refusal to do so, we call on all peoples of Middle Belt and all our allies to reject him at the polls.”
MBF also asked NJC to remove Mr Tanko Muhammad from office for presenting himself to be sworn in unconstitutionally as acting CJN when he was never recommended by NJC.
