PDP Takes Lagos Governor's Election Dispute to Supreme Court

The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced its decision to contest the recent Court of Appeal verdict, which upheld Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the March 18 governorship election. Hakeem Amode, the Publicity Secretary of the Lagos State PDP, revealed the party’s intention in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday.

Having previously indicated its intention to scrutinize the Court of Appeal’s judgment before taking further action, the party now asserts that justice has not been adequately served in the case of its gubernatorial candidate, Olajide Adediran (Jandor), against Governor Sanwo-Olu’s re-election. Mr. Amode declared the party’s plan to challenge the Appeal Court’s ruling at the Supreme Court in the coming days.

Expressing dissatisfaction with the Court of Appeal’s decisions, Amode criticized the justices for allegedly overlooking the merits of Adediran’s petition. He pointed out numerous inconsistencies in the Appeal Court’s stance on pre-election matters, contending that the court had failed the PDP in delivering fair and just judgments.
