Lagos guber: Sanwo-Olu wins at election petitions tribunal
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday floored his opponents 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 over the election that led to the emergence of Sanwo-Olu as governor of Lagos State.
However, the tribunal threw out the petition against the governor for lack of substance.
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.”
