BREAKING: Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Floors His Opponent at Election Petitions Tribunal
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday won at the Election Petition Tribunal.
Sanwo-Olu defeated the governorship candidates of Alliance for Democracy, AD, and Labour party, LP, Owolabi Salis and Prof. Ifagbemi Awamaridi, in the 2019 election at the tribunal.
Both Salis and Awamaridi had petitioned the tribunal to look into the victory of Sanwo-Olu as governor of Lagos State.
However, the tribunal revealed that their petition against the governor lacked credible evidence.
A tweet by Sanwo-Olu’s Deputy Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, reads: “Breaking news: Lagos State Governor Mr. @jidesanwoolu floors AD and Labour Party’s Governorship candidates, Owolabi Salis and Prof. Ifagbemi Awamaridi at the Election Petition Tribunal. The Tribunal has thrown out their petitions for lack of substance.”
