Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said the order issued by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on which President Buhari relied on to suspend the CJN was backed by the constitution.

Mohammed who accused the media of being biased in the reportage of Onnoghen’s suspension, dismissed the criticisms of the action of the president by the main opposition political party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as wishy-washy.
