Arrest of judges: Corruption, not judiciary under attack- President Buhari

President Buhari has broken his silence on the recent arrest of some judges ‎by agents of the SSS. In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, President Buhari said corruption and not the judiciary was under attack. Read the statement below:

The Presidency assures that the President reserves his highest respect for the institution of the judiciary as the third arm of government. To this end, the President will not do anything to undermine its independence. President Buhari remains a committed democrat, in words and in his action, and will not take any action in violation of the constitution. 
The recent surgical operation against some judicial officers is specifically targeted at corruption and not at the judiciary as an institution. In a robust democracy such as ours, there is bound to be a plurality of opinions on any given issue, but there is a convergence of views that the country has a corruption problem that needs to be corrected. But reports by a section of the media are giving us cause for concern. In undertaking the task of reporting, the media should be careful about the fault lines they open. It is wrong to present this incident as a confrontation between the executive and judicial arms of government.  
The Presidency has received assurances from the DSS that all due processes of the law, including the possession of search and arrest warrants were obtained before the searches. To suggest that the government is acting outside the law in a dictatorial manner is to breach the interest of the state.

Who is actually the corrupt one if not BUHARI? Nigeria is in mess and people a leaving for GHANA. My told me story of your 1983 regime and how things were very hard. I grew up and realize all he has told me 20 years ago is true. You are bad luck to a nation. Buhari your evils will hunt you. You are heartless, unforgiven and demonic. We shall see your end soon. Since you entered, you have been fighting selective corrupt whereas you dwell, wine and dine with corrupt crew that will never face the law in your regime. Buhari your days are numbered. Buhari you have made lives of millions of Nigerians harder. Buhari you have caused a lot of people to lose their jobs to running away companies. Buhari all your campaign promises are out of your chase now. 1 square meal per student daily... I hope of poor parents got smashed. Buhari sleeps will depart from you if you don't lead this country with sincerity. Buhari you are a saddist, an extremist and a deceiver. Turn to God, ask him to soften your rock-hard mind so your people shall be free from the plague you brought upon this nation. Buhari change your ways... your days are numbered and you are eating them up. Buhari Leave Something Behind. Buhari is 1983 you left terrifying memories behind... Please this is your second chance God has given you to amend your ways. Buhari you are unrepentant. Change your ways. We need CHANGE and the true change needed is your ways.

I agree corruption is much in this country but is not proper to use more decent means to arrest a supreme Court judges . When chief of Army staff was accused of having 5 houses at Dubai did u applied this type of crude means of arrest b4 he was cleared. Or have u convicted the judges b4 their real trial. Under ur watch our economy collapsed through crude policies. And the same crude means is being applied to judiciary. What legacy are u leaving behind to nurture our democracy. If GEJ used this type of crude means u may not have been president today and may have ended up in jail either through ur actions or comments.

Don't mind Nigerians, always playing the sentimental card. It is only in Nigeria that you will see people criticizing such action of DSS. The British Police, MI5 or MI6 (more like Naija DSS/SSS) will invade anyone's house no matter how highly placed you are, at anytime of the day as long as they have their search warrant. They always come in the dead of the night to carry out such operation. They will break down your door if you do not open it within 2-5 minutes in order to prevent you from hiding any evidence.
We wanted this administration to fight corruption the moment we brought him into power. People should allow him do his job mbok regardless of whose axe is gored

Whoever wrote this statement has lost their mind!! Have you tried the said judges in an open court or referred the matter to their disciplinary body, the NJC?? Buhari is a tyrant and a dictator and Nigerians need to sit up before he hands the country over to his son and gives us an explanation of warrants! You can get all the warrants you like! Separation of powers is a key part of democracy and Buhari has crossed the line! He does not respect the judiciary, the military or even the office he holds! Efcc is after all publicly trying and shaming the immediate ex presidents wife! If you have no respect for the people have some for the offices they held! These operations should be discreet instead they release it to the media to show us they are working, it has backfired this time.. Nigerians are suffering, your wife is collecting dollars from CBN and creating artificial scarcity to enrich her pockets! That's not corruption abi?? It's judges you know how to carry. Buhari your time is coming !!!

Your anti corruption drive is very one sided and you are not following due process. One sided because you are not touching APC members or northerners. Due process and rule of law because we are a democracy and not a dictatorship which you buhari want.
