The Lagos Governorship Election Petition Tribunal is scheduled to announce its verdict on Monday regarding the legal challenges to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s election.
The opposition includes Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party and Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, from the Peoples Democratic Party, both contesting Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the March 18 gubernatorial election.
The announcement of this decision was made by the panel led by Justice Arum Ashom on Saturday. Back on August 12, the legal teams involved presented their final written arguments before the tribunal.
In the initial March 18 election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Sanwo-Olu, representing the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner.
Sanwo-Olu secured a significant victory, receiving 762,134 votes, while Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party came in second with 312,329 votes. Jide Adediran (Jandor) of the PDP placed third, garnering 62,449 votes.
