The situation has worsened the crisis rocking the opposition as the five governors carry out their activities in parallel with the PDP.

However, the CJN, Ariwoola is pleased with the fact that Makinde is among the five governors.

The CJN said, “That is why we should not be scared to have these men of the integrity group.

“And I am happy that my own governor is among them because he would try to imitate his friend and in-law because we came here to marry for my governor.

“So, Governor Wike will always threaten that he will call back his sister if my governor fails to play ball. That is why you see him following his Excellency (Wike) because my governor is afraid of his wife being recalled.”

Ariwoola also commended Wike for his support to the judiciary since his assumption of office in 2015.
