All the members of the All Progressives Congress in the Senate has been summoned by President Buhari to a meeting at the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock, Abuja on Monday, January 28 (today) over the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Onnoghen’s suspension, and possible move by the opposition to kick start impeachment process against President Buhari.
The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, January 25 based on an ex parte order granted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Justice Onnoghen is currently facing a six counts of false assets declaration filed against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

A source disclose to WAILERSNG.com noted that the national leadership of the APC would also attend the meeting.
He said apart from the senators and the APC leaders, some APC governors had also been invited to the meeting.
He said, “You know that the Senate leadership belongs to the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party. The party on its own has taken a position on this matter.
“So, we need to talk to our members in the Senate and impress it on them not to allow Saraki to impose his personal opinion on them.”
APC Reps also to meet members of the APC Caucus in the House of Representatives have scheduled an emergency meeting for Monday, January 28 (today).
The Majority Leader, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, called the meeting, according to a text message circulating among the lawmakers on Sunday.
