Resign Now, Rights Group Tell CJN Ariwoola

A human rights group International Society For Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) has asked the Chief Justice of the Federation, Hon. Justice Olukayode Ariwoola to resign if it true that he sneeked out of the country to meet declared winner of the 2023 presidential election, Alhaji Ahmed Bola Tinubu.


In a letter written to him and signed by the board chair of the group, Comrade Emeka Umeagbalasi, Chinwe Umeche, Head, Democracy and Good Governance Programme of the group,
Chidinma Udegbunam and Ositadinma Agu, the group asked Justice Ariwoola to answer five questions  namely; that he dishonorably sneaked out of Nigeria to UK in a wheelchair as a physically-challenged old man as reported by the People’s Gazette, only to surface hale and jearty in UK Hotel and moved about unaided-with intent to deceive Nigerians and have a clandestine meeting with “INEC-Declared ‘President-Elect’ (Ahmed Bola Tinubu) for the purpose of compromising the 2023 Presidential Poll Judicial Proceedings And Outcomes”.

Also, Intersociety would want to know if it is true that the CJN  has vested Interests or conflict of interests regarding the pending 2023 Presidential Election Petitions owing to hid widely reported affinity with “INEC-Declared ‘President-Elect’ (Ahmed Bola Tinubu), contrary and injurious to natural justice principle that holds that a judge cannot judge a case he or she has an interest or strongly accused of having an interest.

If that is true, then, the Chief Justice should honorably step aside from headship of the apex presidential Election Petitions’ Tribunal and hands off his influencing and controlling authority roles in the Appeal Court and Apex Supreme Court Tribunals.

The group said that if the five weighty allegations leveled against him by The People’s Gazette are partly or wholly true which will result in loss of public trust, the CJ, Mr. Justice Olukayode Ariwoola should resign and voluntarily retire.
