<p class="">Another legal practitioner, Mr James Ude, said that effectiveness of regular court system was paramount and respect for the rule of law must be bedrock to change people’s orientation about the law.</p>

<p class=""><em>“If he has gone contrary, action should be taken to serve as deterrent to those who feel they are above the law.</em></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>
