The Appeal Court sitting in Lagos has upheld the election victory of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the Governor of Lagos State.
The court affirmed the judgment of the tribunal on Wednesday, delivering a unanimous decision in favor of Governor Sanwo-Olu, according to reports from Channels Television.
The appeal was lodged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the earlier tribunal ruling.
However, the justices of the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal on grounds of lack of merit, reinforcing the legitimacy of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s election.
The judgement was delivered by Justice Yargata Nimpa, Justice Samuel Bola and Justice Paul Bassey.
