Supreme Court has today, affirmed the election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State,
The Apex Court, in a unanimous decision by a five-member panel led by Justice Inyang Okoro, dismissed as lacking merit, two separate appeals that challenged his return as winner of the governorship election held in the state on March 18.
The appeals were brought before the Court by candidates of the Labour Party, Honourable Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abdulazeez Adediran.
Specifically, the Labour Party and its candidate, Rhodes-Vivour, had prayed to the court to determine whether Sanwo-Olu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress was qualified to contest the election, considering that his deputy and running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, has dual citizenship.
