Chief Justice of Nigeria , Justice Dahiru Musdapher

The South West chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has decried what it described as the  plot by the National Judicial Council to forcibly reinstate Justice Ayo Salami without  waiting for President Goodluck Jonathan ‘ s consent .

This came as a group, the Society for the Rule of Law in Nigeria, in a statement signed by the coordinator, Comrade Chima Ubeku,  called on the  Chief Justice of Nigeria , Justice Dahiru Musdapher, to shun any interference by politicians in the resolution of the crisis in the judiciary,  particularly as it pertains to the embattled Justice Salami.

The South West PDP publicity secretary, Hon Kayode Babade, who signed the statement  by his party,  said  “plans are afoot, following a meeting by these characters in the opposition,  and some prominent  stakeholders, urging  the NJC to use its meeting scheduled for June 6 and 7  to reinstate Salami without waiting for the approval of the President on the ground that the President’s  approval was not necessary to reinstate the  suspended President Court of Appeal,  who the same NJC accused of misconduct.”

The party said this move should be nipped in the bud  by the CJN who should not in his hurry to satisfy some “vested interests” create  confusion in the judiciary in the twilight of his tenure
