Today, the Lagos State Governorship electoral Petition Tribunal will rule on the electoral conflict between Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his rivals regarding the results of the state’s 2023 governorship election.
Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor, and Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party are contesting INEC’s announcement that Sanwo-Olu won the March 18, 2023, Lagos governorship election.
The parties were informed on Saturday by the panel, which was chaired by Justice Arum Ashom, that the case will be decided today.
On August 12, lawyers in the petitions adopted their final written addresses before the tribunal.
The All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Sanwo-Olu was proclaimed the victor of the March 18 governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party finished in second place, and Sanwo-Olu won the election with a resounding victory.
Rhodes-Vivour received 312,329 votes, but Lagos State Governor won with 762,134 votes. With 62,449 votes, PDP candidate Jide Adediran (Jandor) finished in a distant third place.
