The President of the Senate Bukola Saraki, has reacted to the suspension and replacement of the Chief Justice of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

He further reiterates that all democratic institutions across the world should stand against the act.

“At this point, all democratic institutions in the country, the international community and democrats across the world should rise against this blatant act of impunity.

We must jointly condemn this retrogressive, uncivilized and despotic measure.”

He hence calls on President Buhari to reverse his decision and let the law take its natural cause.

“I call on President Buhari to immediately reverse this decision and allow the due process of the law to take its natural course.”
