The All Progressives Congress, APC caucus in the Senate on Monday said they were not part of the suit filed by the Senate at the Supreme Court, seeking the interpretation of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan revealed the position of the APC Senators in a statement.
According to Lawan, the APC caucus in the Senate were not aware of the said suit and would not be part of it, saying that the senate never met to take such a resolution and at no time mandated anyone to approach the Supreme Court.
In his words: “It has come to the notice of the Senate APC caucus that the Senate has approached the Supreme Court for the interpretation of the suspension of Justice Walter Onnoghen by the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.
“For the records, the Senate never met to take such resolution and at no time mandated anyone to approach the Supreme Court on this matter on its behalf.
“Consequently, the Senate APC caucus dissociates itself from the said request for the legal interpretation of the suspension.”
