CJN Didn’t Speak To Anyone On Election Petition Cases.

The Supreme Court has assured that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, will not interfere in the ongoing cases before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).

The apex Court, through its Director of Press and Information, Dr Akande Festus, said contrary to social media reports, the CJN did not speak to anyone on the cases in PEPC.

He said, “Given the rumour currently circulating in the social media space that the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, had a telephone conversation with His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS) to pressurize the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on the likely judgment to give, it is imperative to state clearly that there is no iota of truth in the narrative, as there was no such telephone conversation between the CJN and anyone. Nigerians have been following the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal proceedings with admirable enthusiasm.

“So, it is advisable we all sustain the tempo and follow it up to the end instead of relapsing into the realm of speculations and rumour peddling that will not do anyone any good. If this current trend of falsehood and mudslinging is sustained, our nation may not make the desired progress.

“The Courts are statutorily established to serve the best interest of the masses, and we are ever poised to do that to the best of our ability. We plead with everyone to cooperate with the judiciary to serve the country to its total capacity, as no one will ever be favoured against the other in any dispute.

“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.”
