Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, has reacted to the statements issued by the governments of the US, UK and the European Union observers on the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
Channel TV reports that Oshiomhole on Monday, January 28, condemned the statements at the presidential villa after the APC Senate caucus and the party’s senatorial candidates met with President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, “Nigeria is not a colony. We will not accept any foreign interference in the internal affairs of Nigeria.”
According to him, “They (judges) have been dismissed across the world when they are found guilty of corruption and the western world cannot, on the one hand when it suits them, describe Nigeria as fantastically corrupt and when a corrupt judicial officer is being charged, people want to interfere.”
“I think we all have to be careful. We must defend the sovereignty of our country. “We welcome collaboration, we welcome peer review; we can compare notes.
”We welcome people who are interested in sharing experiences with us wherever the need arises whether it is capacity building or making useful suggestions on how we can improve on our electoral process. Those are very valuable contributions that we appreciate.”
