Festus Keyamo, a former Nigerian Minister has responded to the Supreme Court’s statement debunking various rumours sorrounding the court and the justices.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, on August 21, 2023, through his verified Twitter account submitted that the Supreme Court or the Government’s Judiciary arm had never had cause to deny reports in the history od Nigerian.
His comments followed the supreme court’s denial of the claim that president Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Nigeria’s top Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, had a phone discussion.
According to the Senior Advocate, this development has never happened before.
He claimed that individuals making up the tales are doing so in an effort to threaten the institution.
“It’s now one day, one concocted story against the judiciary and judicial officers, all in a bid to blackmail that revered institution to do some parochial bidding.
“Never in our history has the Supreme Court or the judicial arm of Govt been forced to be issuing denials every other.” The SAN reiterated.
