Court Dismisses LP’s Appeal, Affirms Sanwo-Olu’s Victory

The Court of Appeal in Lagos has affirmed the judgement of the tribunal, confirming the return of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Lagos State.

In March, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the Lagos governorship election.

Sanwo-Olu polled 762,134 votes to defeat his close challenger, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP), who scored 312,329 votes. Abdulazeez Adediran, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), came a distant third with 62,449 votes.

Not satisfied, the LP and PDP candidates approached the Lagos State Election Petitions Tribunal to nullify Sanwo-Olu’s victory.

Ruling on the appeal yesterday, the appellate court dismissed the suit filed by the Labour Party’s governorship candidate for lacking in merit.

In a unanimous decision, the three-man panel led by Justice Yargata Nimpa affirmed Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat as Governor and Deputy Governor of Lagos State.
