The Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal, on Wednesday, dismissed the appeals filed by the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and that of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, against the electoral victory of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.
The three-man panel of the Appellate Court presided over by Justice Yargata Nimpar, in a unanimous judgement, dismissed the appeals for lacking in merit.
The court held that the Appellants failed to prove their allegations of forgery and non-qualification against the governor and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat.
Justice Nimpar, who read the judgement on the PDP’s appeal, held that, “even though they were all pre-election matters, the appellants (PDP and Adeniran) still failed to prove them. The appellants came empty-handed and left empty-handed. They merely enjoyed their day in court. Their petition is dismissed.”
Other Justices of the panel were Justice Samuel Bola and Justice Paul Bassi.
