Court Of Appeal Affirms Sanwo-Olu’s Re-election 

The Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, has dismissed an appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Governorship Candidate for Lagos State,  Mr Abdulazeez  Adediran, against re-election of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.

The court upheld the Sept. 25 decision of the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal  affirming the victory of Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat in the March 18 governorship poll.

It held that the appellants failed to prove their allegations of forgery and non-qualification against Sanwo-Olu and his deputy.

“Though they were all pre-election matters, the appellants, PDP and its candidate, Adeniran, still failed to prove them.

“The appellants came empty-handed and left empty-handed.

“Their petition lacked merit and was dismissed,” the court held. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that, as at the time of this report, the court was delivering judgment in a similar appeal by the Labour Party and its Candidate for the election,  Mr Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
