The Lagos Governorship Election Tribunal has struck out the petition filed by the Labour Party (LP) and its candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and from that of Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Jandor is challenging the election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dr Obafemi Hamzat in the March 18 governorship elections in Lagos State.
The judgement was delivered by Justice Mikhail Abdullah in the objections raised by respondents in the matter.
Earlier, the chairman of the panel Justice Arum Ashom had announced that the court would first deliver judgment in the case of the PDP and its candidate before going to give its judgement in the petition of the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
Justice Ashom also announced that his colleague on the bench, Justice Mikail Abdullahi will read the judgment on behalf of the panel.
