The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it has suspended its campaign for 72 hours to protest the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

Less than twenty four hours ago, President Muhammadu Buhari controversially suspended Mr Onnoghen from office.

Many Nigerians including the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) and Senate President Bukola Saraki have described the president’s action as illegal.

In a statement, the national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, said the party is suspending its campaign for 72 hours, in solidarity with Nigerians.

The campaign council, co-chaired by Secondus, also described Buhari’s action as a “dangerous and brazen assault on the constitution”

The PDP Presidential Campaign was scheduled to be in Benue State today, before the suspension.

In the same vein, the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Donald Duke has also faulted the present administration for suspending chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

The former Cross Rivers state governor described the CJN’s suspension as undemocratic and not right for the polity.

He also added that this action is a “blatant and arrogant display of power exhibited.”
