Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s victory has been upheld by the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, reiterating his status as the legitimately elected governor of Lagos State.
News About Nigeria reports that the tribunal rejected the petitions submitted by Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party and Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Recall that Rhodes-Vivour claimed in his petition that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the APC’s nominee for governor, lacked the qualifications necessary to run for office.
Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Hamzat, are said to have been ineligible to run for office, according to Adediran and the PDP.
Adediran begged for the election to be ruled a waste of all votes voted for them.
A further claim made by Jandor was that Rhodes-Vivour was ineligible to run at the time of the election.
