Tension In Lagos As Governorship Election Tribunal To Deliver Judgment Today

There is tension among political gladiators as the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will today deliver judgment in the suits challenging the election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The Justice Arum Ashom-led panel communicated this message to all parties on Saturday.

It has been reported that the Labour Party’s governorship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate, Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, are challenging the victory of Sanwo-Olu at the March 18 governorship election.

On August 12, lawyers in the petitions adopted their final written addresses before the tribunal.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 18 governorship election.


The incumbent Lagos State governor had won the election by a landslide, defeating Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party, who came second.

Governor Sanwo-Olu polled 762,134 votes to beat Rhodes-Vivour, who scored 312,329 votes. Jide Adediran (Jandor) of the PDP came a distant third, polling 62,449 votes.
