Lagos Tribunal is set to deliver judgment on Sanwo-Olu’s victory on Monday, 25th September, 2023.


NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has fixed a date to deliver judgment on petitions brought before it after the 2023 election.


This Nigeria News platform understands that the judgment will be delivered on Monday, September 25.


The governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour made this disclosure on Saturday.


NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that via a post on X, Rhodes-Vivour said he has been told that the ruling will be delivered on Monday.


He posted, “We have just been informed that judgment on our election petition at the tribunal will be delivered on Monday, the 25th of September.”


Rhodes-Vivour, alongside the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abdul-Azeez Adediran approached the tribunal with their separate petitions.


Citing electoral fraud, among other claims, the two parties are asking the tribunal to nullify the re-election of governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.


Each of them wants to be declared winner of the election.
