Appeal Court affirms election of Sanwo-Olu as Lagos governor

The Court of Appeal in Lagos today dismissed an appeal filed by the Labour Party challenging the judgment of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which affirmed the election of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu as Governor of Lagos State.

The Appeal Court, in a unanimous decision, held that the appeal lodged by Labour Party lacked merit.

Justice Hannatu Sankey, who read the lead judgment of the five-man panel of Justices of Appeal Court, specifically affirmed the decisions reached by the tribunal.

According to the Court, the appellant, Labour Party, failed to produce any oral or documentary evidence through witnesses and other channels to establish the fact that Governor Sanwo-Olu was not qualified to contest the election and did not win the governorship election.

The Court further ruled that the petitioner went on a Columbian Journey of making assertions with nothing to back it up and thereby dismissed the appeal in its entirety.

All the other four Justices of the Court affirmed and concurred with the lead judgement.
