Northern Coalition Calls For CJN Resignation, Over G5 Comment

by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

A northern coalition group made up of 52 socio-cultural and political groups under the aegies of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has called on the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Olukayode Ariwoola, to resign from office following his recent comment where he allegedly supported the G5 Group of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The CJN had last week, during the inauguration of a project built by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, the leader of the G5, sparked controversies by expressing happiness that Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State aligned himself with the PDP G5 governors.

Following the statement and the controversy it raised, the CNG, at a press conference on Thursday, accused Ariwoola of partisanship and said he should do the honourable thing by resigning.

“We call for the immediate resignation of Mr. Ariwoola from the position of the Chief Justice of Nigeria and an unconditional apology to Nigerians for the embarrassment caused,” the group said.
