The process and timing of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria-EU



The    EU    Election    Observation    Mission     is concerned    about the    process    and   
timing   of   the   suspension   of   the   Chief   Justice   of   Nigeria

EUROPEAN   UNION
ELECTION   OBSERVATION   MISSION NIGERIA   2019
GENERAL ELECTIONS
EU   EOM   statement,   26   January   2019
The    European    Union    was    invited    by    the    Independent    National    Electoral    Commission    to   
observe   the   2019   general   elections.   
The    EU    Election    Observation    Mission    (EU    EOM) is    very    concerned    about the    process    and   
timing   of   the   suspension   of   the   Chief   Justice   of   Nigeria, Honourable   Justice   Walter   Onnoghen,   
on   25   January.   
With    20 days    until    the    presidential    and    National    Assembly    elections,    political    parties,   
candidates   and   voters must   be   able   to   have   confidence   in   the   impartiality   and   independence   
of   the   judicial   system.
The   decision to    suspend    the   Chief    Justice   has   led    to   many   Nigerians,   including   lawyers and   
civil   society   observer   groups,   to   question whether   due   process   was followed.   The   timing,   just   
before    the   swearing   in   of   justices    for   Electoral   Tribunals and    the   hearing   of   election-related   
cases,   has   also   raised   concerns   about   the   opportunity for   electoral   justice.
The   EU   EOM   calls   on   all   parties   to   follow   the   legal   processes   provided   for   in   the   Constitution   
and   to   respond   calmly to   any   concerns   they   may   have.   
The   EU   EOM will   continue   observing   all   aspects   of   the   election, including   the   independence of   
the   election   administration,    the    neutrality    of    security   agencies, and    the   extent    to   which    the   
judiciary   can   and   does   fulfil   its   election-related   responsibilities.
