Festus Keyamo, the spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, has responded to reports that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Kayode Ariwoola, met with President-elect Bola Tinubu in London.
Recall that social media has been agog with reports that the CJN allegedly met with Tinubu in London.
Kayode Ariwoola, on the other hand, was seen on Friday performing Jumat prayers at Abuja’s Ansar-Ud-Deen Central Mosque.
In response to the development, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment stated on Twitter that the opposition parties have resorted to playing the ethnic card, which is completely unacceptable.
According to Keyamo, they want to intimidate the judiciary after attempting to blackmail and intimidate voters as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The card they are playing with the fake CJN story is to raise so much dust about the CJN, albeit unfounded and fake.
So that when they get to the Supreme Court, they will ask him to recuse himself; they want to play the ethnic card up to the S/Court. It is absolutely condemnable!
After attempting to blackmail & intimidate voters, they failed; then they tried to blackmail & intimidate INEC, they failed; now they want to blackmail and intimidate the judiciary. Yet, such despicable characters actually aspire to lead this country. It is sad. Very sad indeed!
