Tinubu Denies Meeting With Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ariwoola

The Media Director of Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu, Bayo Onanuga has denied that his principal met with the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, in London.

The Peoples Gazette had on Thursday, in an exclusive report, detailed how the CJN traveled to the UK in disguise for a planned meeting with the President-elect.

The meeting is said to over some issues around the petition filed by the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi and his PDP counterpart Atiku Abubakar against his emergence as President-elect.

In a statement released on Thursday, Onanuga claimed the story was “a pure concoction” from hatchet men.

He also explained that Tinubu was still in France resting and has not been to the UK yet.

“To show that the story was a mere salacious fiction, meant to draw traffic to the discredited purveyor, it claimed the Chief Justice left Nigeria for London on 11 March, on a wheelchair to board a plane.

“The President-elect left Nigeria on 21 March, 10 clear days thereafter. What kind of appointment or secret meeting will the two men have arranged in London, with so wide disparate arrival dates, except in the imagination of the false news merchants?

“We can confirm that the President-elect, who left Nigeria Tuesday has not been in London,” the statement read in part.

It further warned Nigerians and the media to be wary of more fake news as the countdown to the presidential inauguration on May 29 continues.
