SocialMediaTrends: Reaction trails CJN Ariwoola’s UK visit & Adeleke’s victory at Appeal Court
In what is generating heavy reactions on social media, Chief Justice Olukayode Ariwoola was allegedly seen in London claiming to be an elderly man with physical limitations in what was believed to be a covert setting up for a meeting with President-elect Bola Tinubu.
To further fuel the development, an image of the Chief Justice in a wheelchair was seen in an area alleged to be an airport.
Nigerians took to social media to express dissatisfaction with the development.
Recall that the presidential candidates of the Labor Party and the Peoples Democratic Party have taken to the tribunal to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce Bola Tinubu as president-elect.
However, another video appeared today showing the CJN returning from prayer in Nigeria.
Nigerians took to social media to put some thought into what could have happened.
See how Nigerians are reacting:

Sincerely, I understand those who believe Tinubu was rushed to a hospital in Paris. I also understand those who believe he met with the CJN Ariwoola in London. Our biases make us believe what aligns. But, those who believe both info are true, what’s going on in your head?

Tinubu, the man with the strength of a Lion;
Wednesday: Collapsed & was rushed to France.

Friday: Will be meeting INEC Chairman in Tokyo.

The ruling of the Osun State Gubernatorial Election Petition Tribunal overturned by the Abuja Appeal Court to uphold the election of Ademola Adeleke as the governor of Osun State has been generating responses on social media.
In a unanimous ruling, the appellate court determined that Adeleke’s appeal against being fired by the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal was meritorious.
The three-judge panel led by Justice Mohammed Lawal reached this conclusion.
Jubilant supporters took to social media to express satisfaction with the ruling while others believed the Supreme Court would have a final say.

Oyetola should not bother going to Supreme Court, Adeleke is loved by the Osun people.
Allow the will of the people prevail 🤌🏾

Adeleke won the Osun election before our very eyes. To declare otherwise will make citizens mock the judiciary and have no regard for it. The judiciary must remain the last hope of the common man. I hail the judiciary for its judgment on Osun today.

See as LP and Obidients follow Dey celebrate Adeleke’s victory like say na our Candidate.🥳 Let the Election reflect the People’s Will. Finish. 🥰🇳🇬
