The Court of Appeal in Lagos will, today, deliver judgement in the appeals filed by the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran, challenging the re-election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. A notice sent out by the court to parties in the appeal says the judgement will be delivered today at 3pm.
Exactly eight days ago, on Nov 7th, the Court of Appeal panel led by Justice Yargata Nimpar had reserved judgement in the two appeals after listening to the arguments of the parties.
Recall that on September 25, the Election Petitions Tribunal had in its unanimous decision dismissed the two petitions and upheld the re-election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy Obafemi Hamzat.
At the hearing of the two appeals on Nov 7th, the three-man panel led by Justice Yargata Nimpar reserved the judgement after taking arguments from parties.
