The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has described the alleged telephone conversation between President Bola Tinubu and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Olukayode Ariwoola over the outcome of the presidential election petition as mischievous and intentionally misleading.
A Twitter user, Jackson Ude had in a tweet alleged that the CJN had through a telephone conversation advised president Tinubu and the APC to get ready for a rerun of the 2023 presidential election.
Reacting to the allegation on Wednesday, the party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka said Ude fabricated a falsehood on a matter of serious national importance that is actively under review by the Presidential Election Petitions Court
He explained that President Tinubu and the APC won the February 25 2023 Presidential election without a doubt, and do not have any need to engage in side conversations with the CJN regarding pending petitions before the PEPC.
The APC expressed confidence that “Nigerians are smarter and more discerning to be affected by this opposition brand of tasteless and crass mercenary expeditions.”
