The Labour Party’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and the Peoples Democratic Party’s Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran filed an appeal challenging Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s re-election, and the Court of Appeal in Lagos is scheduled to issue its decision on the appeal on Wednesday, November 15.

The court informed those involved in the appeal that the verdict would be announced at 3 p.m.

The case brought by the LP candidate disputing Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the 2023 governorship election was reportedly dismissed by the Lagos Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, as reported by MISMOB.

The election tribunal found no basis for Rhodes-Vivour’s petition and confirmed Sanwo-Olu as the lawfully elected governor of the state.

The Labour Party candidate had petitioned the tribunal to overturn Sanwo-Olu’s March 18 election victory, citing the latter’s alleged lack of eligibility and dishonest campaign tactics.

He also claimed that the governor had disregarded the Electoral Act of 2022.
