Mr Dennis Aghanya, the man behind the petition of false assets and non-assets declaration against CJN Walter Onnoghen, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari knows nothing about it.
Aghanya, who is the Executive Director, Anti-Corruption and Research-Based Data Initiative (ARDI), stated this in reaction to claims that the Presidency was behind the petition in a bid to remove the Chief Justice ahead of the 2019 general elections.
He told reporters Saturday night that he also took President Buhari to court in 2011 before he became president.
“Did you not know that I once took Mr. President to court in 2011? I used to be one of his aides but I took him to court,” Aghanya told Punch.
“This is a petition by an NGO, what has Mr. President got to do with it?
“People are just trying to avoid a major issue. Our concern is to unveil irregularities.
“People should not try to politicise the good work we are doing.
“The person the petition was written against owned up to everything. In issues of this nature should we be sentimental or do we face facts?” he queried.
