The Presidency has broke its silence on the allegations of inducements raised by two of the judges arrested recently by the DSS.
President Muhammadu Buhari through his spokesman, Garba Shehu on Sunday said he never authorised anybody to induce a judge to pervert the course of justice.
Two of the embattled judges claimed that the Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, approached them allegedly on the instruction of the President to influence decisions on some election cases.
But Shehu advised journalists and other Nigerians to stop linking Buhari to the travails of the judges.
He noted that despite his personal familiarity with some court judges, the President had never used that familiarity to seek favours from them.
Shehu said the President lives by this principle and has never deviated from it.
