The Appeal Court sitting in Lagos has dismissed the appeal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate Olajide Adediran, challenging the declaration of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the March 18 governorship election in the state.
Naija News reports that the three-man panel unanimously affirmed the decision of the Lagos State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal which on September 25 affirmed the victory of Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
It held that the appellants failed to prove their allegations of forgery and non-qualification against Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat.

The justices held: “Even though they were all pre-election matters, the appellants (PDP and Adeniran) still failed to prove them. The appellants came empty-handed and left empty-handed. They merely enjoyed their day in court. Their petition is dismissed.”
