The presidency has yet to confirm the receipt of a letter of resignation by the suspended Chief Justice of the Federation , Justice Walter Onnoghen.
The NEWSPAD reliably gathered that Onnoghen ’ s resignation letter was submitted to the Chief of Staff to the President , Malam Abba Kyari , by some Justices of the apex court .
NEWSPAD, however , learnt that the Justices who submitted the letter arrived at the presidential villa a few minutes after President Muhammadu Buhari had left Abuja for Jordan to participate in the World Economic Forum on Thursday.

A presidency source confirmed to NEWSPAD that President Buhari had , before his departure , received the National Judicial Council’ s recommendations on the petition written against Onnoghen and the acting CJN , Justice Tanko Muhammad .
The report was submitted to the president by his Chief of Staff , Mallam Abba Kyari , who was accompanied by the Attorney – General and Minister of Justice , Abubakar Malami , at about 2: 20 p . m.
The Director , Information, NJC , Mr Soji Oye , on Wednesday in a statement , confirmed that the council had sent its report to President Buhari after the conclusion of its investigation into the petitions against Onnoghen and the acting CJN .
Efforts to speak to presidential spokesmen , Mr Femi Adesina and Mallam Garba Shehu , on the matter , proved abortive as the duo were outside the country on official and private engagements .
NEWSPAD reports that Adesina is currently on President Buhari’ s entourage to Jordan while Shehu is in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage.
