Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has urged the newly appointed acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice OluKayode Ariwoola, to bring unto the apex judicial position the competence and integrity that hallmarked his career.

 

He said this in a congratulatory message by his spokesperson Mr Tunde Rahman on Tuesday in Abuja.

 

Tinubu, while congratulating Justice Ariwoola, also wished the former CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad quick recovery.

 

Recall that Muhammad resigned on Monday on health grounds.

 

“I congratulate Justice Olukayode Ariwoola on his elevation to the topmost judicial position with his appointment as Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria,” Tunubu said.

 

“To say this appointment is richly deserved is stating the obvious as Justice Ariwoola has given everything to the law and judiciary.

 

”Justice Ariwoola has held important appointments over the years during which he demonstrated excellence.

 

“His over four decades judicial career has been hallmarked by competence, integrity and deep understanding and interpretation of the law without fear or favour.”

 

He added, “I thank Justice Muhammad for his services to Nigeria and the judiciary, and I wish him a most memorable retirement.”

 

Justice Ariwoola was called to the bar in 1981 and rose to the apex court as a Justice of the Supreme Court back in 2011.
