Drama ensued on Arise TV this morning September 7, between one of the TV anchors, Rufai Oseni, and a guest on the show.
The guest, Jesutega Onokpasa, got irked when a fellow guest on the show questioned the integrity of the judges that upheld the election of President Bola Tinubu. The guest questioned the reasons given by the judges for dismissing the petitions filed against the emergence of Tinubu as the winner of the February 25, 2023 presidential.
Onokpasa while expressing his disappointment at the guest who is a lawyer like himself, said;.
‘’He is not a Supreme Court judge. If he was that great a lawyer, maybe he will be a Supreme court judge. It is highly unfit of him to impugn the integrity of their lordships”
It was at this point Rufai interjected and asked him to take his words back. He said Onokpasa should not be attacking a guest on the show.
‘’I think you should take that back. You shouldn’t have attacked him personally. You can’t do that to a fellow guest. Take that back with due respect” Rufai said
Onokpasa on his part insisted he would not take his words back as he would not sit and watch anyone disrespect the justices.
‘’I am a lawyer. I will not stand any lawyer insulting the justices of the Supreme Court. I said I will not take it back” he said.
