According to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is currently in France, contrary to speculations that he was in London for a meeting with Chief Justice of Nigeria Olukayode Ariwoola (CJN).
According to the campaign council, there was no meeting between President-elect Bola Tinubu and Chief Justice of Nigeria Olukayode Ariwoola (CJN).
In a statement issued on Thursday, Bayo Onanuga, the campaign council’s media director, condemned an attempt to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election that resulted in Tinubu’s election as president-elect.
According to Onanuga, the president-elect is currently in Paris, France, rather than the United Kingdom.
“The story was a pure concoction of hatchet men bent on creating doubts and public distrust about the legitimacy of our recent election, which was won by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.
“We categorically deny that there has been any covert meeting between the president-elect and our respected chief justice, anywhere.” It’s fabricated news with no basis in fact or authenticity.
“To demonstrate that the story was merely a salacious fiction designed to draw attention to the discredited purveyor, it claimed the Chief Justice left Nigeria for London on March 11, on a wheelchair to board a plane.”
“The president-elect left Nigeria on March 21, 10 days later.” Except in the imagination of the false news merchants, what kind of appointment or secret meeting will the two men have arranged in London, with such widely disparate arrival dates?
“We can confirm that the president-elect has not been in London since he left Nigeria on Tuesday.” He is currently in France, taking a well-deserved break after a hectic campaign that began in January 2022.
“He will then travel to London before proceeding to Mecca for the lesser Hajj.”
