The frightening aspect is that the Head of the Executive Branch unilaterally suspended the Head of the Judiciary. It is unprecedented in our history. The former military rulers only suspended portions of the Constitution, scrapped the Legislature and ousted the courts’ powers over certain military decrees. The Judiciary’s status as the last hope of the citizenry remained sacrosanct. If a President is allowed to suspend the CJN with such impunity, he can choose to do whatever else he likes in the future. That is not acceptable. In our presidential system the Heads of the Executive and the Judiciary can never be removed without the involvement of all the three armed of government. It is only the leadership of the National Assembly that can be removed by their colleagues who elect them.
