0 165

The Labour Party’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and the People’s Democratic Party’s Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran filed the appeal contesting Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s reelection. The Court of Appeal in Lagos will rule on this appeal on Wednesday, November 15.

The judgment will be given at 3 p.m., according to a letter the court gave to the parties involved in the appeal.

The LP candidate’s lawsuit contesting Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the 2023 governorship race was reportedly dismissed by the Lagos Governorship race Petition Tribunal.

The electoral tribunal ruled that Sanwo-Olu was the state’s legitimately elected governor and rejected Rhodes-Vivour’s plea.

The Labour Party candidate had petitioned the tribunal to contest Sanwo-Olu’s election win on March 18th, claiming that it was invalid due to non-qualification and unethical behavior.

Additionally, he charged the governor with disregarding the provisions of the 2022 Election Act.
