The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved judgment in the appeals by the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party challenging the victory of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The apex court adjourned the matter for judgment after counsel in the matter adopted their briefs.
Recall that sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress defeated the candidates of the LP, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and PDP’s Azeez Adediran, to win the governorship election.
Challenging the decision at the Court of Appeal, Adediran and Rhodes-Vivour filed grounds of appeal, which were eventually dismissed.
The two candidates appealed against the appellate court’s judgment and asked the apex court to vacate the order.
