Justice Walter Onnoghen was accused of false asset declaration after numerous offshore accounts were traced back to him. After further investigation, he was removed from office by President Muhammadu Buhari and replaced him with Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed from Bauchi State.

In a statement released on Friday January 25th 2019, the Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said the Party is suspendeding all its campaign activities to show solidarity with the numerous Nigerians who are against the "Illegal" removal of Justice Onnoghen.

Mr. Secondus also stated that the removal is unconstitutional and a threat to our democracy as Nigerians.

The full statement reads:
Press Statement
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council has suspended its presidential campaign in protest of President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to suspend the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
The PDP Campaign Council further predicated the suspension of its campaign activities in solidarity with Nigerians in our collective rejection of the assault against our democratic order.
Describing President Buhari action as a “dangerous and brazen assault on the constitution”, the PDP Campaign Council says in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday night that there is no point in campaigning to contest in an election, whose very basis has been so flagrantly undermined.
“The basis for this election is the democracy itself. When democracy comes under this kind of virulent attack, then the election itself becomes superfluous,” the statement said.
The PDP Presidential Campaign was scheduled to be in Benue State on Saturday. But it now said it is suspending its campaign activities for a period of 72 hours in the first instance.
“In the first instance, we are suspending our campaign for 72 hours. It is our hope that President Buhari will listen to the voice of all lovers of democracy the world over and restore democracy in Nigeria immediately and without qualifications. At the moment, the President has effectively suspended the constitution under whose basis the elections are being contested.
The action of President Buhari represents a constitutional breach and a direct attack on our democracy. This must never be allowed to stand, as there is no way by which democracy can survive under these autocratic tendencies.
We call on all well meaning Nigerians to rise in defence of democracy and save our nation from this imminent slide into tyranny.
