The Lagos State Governorship Election Tribunal will deliver judgment on petitions filed by some aggrieved governorship candidates in the state on Monday, September 25.
The candidates who filed the petitions are Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party and Olajide Adediran (Jandor) of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The tribunal, led by Justice Arum Ashom, communicated the date of judgment to the parties on Saturday evening.
Rhodes-Vivour and Jandor are challenging the return of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat of the All Progressives Congress in the March 18 governorship election.
Sanwo-Olu was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), after he polled 762,134 votes to defeat Rhodes-Vivour, who polled 312,329 votes. Jandor came third with 62,449 votes.
The petitioners are alleging irregularities in the election, including over-voting, underage voting, and violence. They are praying the tribunal to nullify the election and order a fresh one.
