The Supreme Court has responded to allegations that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Olukayode Ariwoola, telephoned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and urged him to prepare for a rerun election. The Supreme Court ruled that the assertion is untrue and contains no iota of truth.

The story began to circulate on social media after Jackson Ude, a strategic communicator specialist and journalist, said on his verified Twitter profile that the CJN had phoned the President and told him to prepare for a rerun election.

“CJN tells Tinubu, APC to prepare for a rerun, as two more justices are barred from entering the US after secret phone conversations are intercepted,” he stated.

“The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, is said to have informed Bola Tinubu and the APC that a rerun election would be held.” This is despite the fact that three private talks he held with Tinubu, the DG of the DSS, Yusuf Bichi, and two other Supreme Court Justices were leaked to US authorities. These two Justices have been added to the list of six Supreme Court Justices who are barred from entering the United States, increasing the total to eight.”

In response to the claim, the Supreme Court’s spokesman, Festus Akande, stated that the CJN did not have such a phone call with anyone.

He said that Nigerians have been following the proceedings at the election tribunal with enthusiasm, and that they should continue doing so and not be carried away by rumours and speculations that will not do any good.

In the report which was made by The Cable, he said – “If this current trend of falsehood and mudslinging is sustained, our nation may not make the desired progress.”

Speaking further, he added – “The rule of law and supremacy of the Nigerian constitution will always be upheld and applied in every matter that comes before the courts, as the facts presented and the subsisting laws must be applied in determining the merit or otherwise of each matter.

“The public should rest assured that justice will be done to all matters pending in the various courts across the country, irrespective of who is involved.”
