JUST IN: Sanwo-Olu wins at election petitions tribunal

The governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, demolished his opponents on Monday at the Court for electoral petitions.

Sanwo-Olu defeated the governmental candidates of the Alliance for Democracy, AD and Labor, LP, Owolabi Salis and prof. Ifagbemi Awamaridi, in the 2019 election in court.

Both Salis and Awamaridi petitioned the court for the elections that led to the appearance of Sanwo-Olu as governor of the state of Lagos.

However, the court rejected 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.”
