<p class="">Key analysts have said that the plan to arraign Chief Judge of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, over alleged failure of assets declaration will change citizens perceptions and orientation about laws.</p>

<p class=""><em>“We need to change our orientation and beliefs that president is doing this because of tribe,</em>” Ude said.</p>

<p class="">A political analyst, Mr Ikechukwu Nwonu stated that same charge should be accorded to those defaulting.</p>

<p class=""><em>“People need to change the ways they talk, behave, like and the earlier we do so the better to move Nigeria forward</em>,” Nwonu said.</p>

<p class="">NAN reports that the CJN will appear before the Justice Danladi Yakubu led- Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja on six charges bordering on failure to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.</p>
