Saraki Says Onnoghen’s Trial has Implications on the Principle of Separation of Power

The President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki says that the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen has implications on the principle of separation of power and checks and balance which are significant factors in a presidential system.

Saraki who recently accused President Buhari of corruption through the means of subsidy scam used this chance to reiterates his stand that President Muhammadu Buhari is not transparent and corrupt. He says:

The proposed trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) has once again opened up the debate on the transparency and neutrality of this administration’s fight against corruption.

The entire country and the international community will be watching every step in this trial closely because it is definitely unusual, unprecedented and will define the engagement between the three arms of government.

This trial definitely has implications for the principle of separation of powers and the concept of checks and balances, which are embedded in our presidential system of government.
