Abdulazeez Adediran, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, has filed an appeal challenging the re-election of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as governor of the state.
On September 25, the tribunal dismissed the petition filed by Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, for lacking in merit.
Reacting to the ruling, Adediran said the tribunal refused to accept credible and convincing evidence presented by his legal team on the non-qualification of candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Labour Party (LP) in the election.
He said the decision of the tribunal did not reflect the provisions of the constitution, assuring that “Lagos PDP will study the judgement and decide on the next step to be taken”.
In the 35 grounds of appeal filed on Friday, Adeniran is praying the court to set aside the judgment of the tribunal.
He said the tribunal erred in law and reached a wrong conclusion when it dismissed his petition.
“By this action, I reaffirm my commitment to birth a breath of fresh air in governance in Lagos state by ensuring that the provisions of the constitution and the electoral laws as regards election of a truly qualified governor, is upheld,” he said.
