Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on a directive by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, before which he is standing trial over allegations of the fraudulent declaration of assets.

On January 28, 2019, the Senate approached the Supreme Court to get clarification on the constitutionality of the President’s action.

A statement on Monday by Yusuph Olaniyonu, spokesman of Senate President Bukola Saraki, noted that the Senate discontinued the case, which had been slated for hearing on Tuesday, as proof of its trust “in the ability of the National Judicial Council (NJC) to resolve the issues”.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly also expressed confidence in the ability of the National Judicial Council (NJC) to resolve the issues.

“This decision also affirms the confidence of the Senate in the ability of the NJC to successfully and creditably resolve the issues.”
