The Lagos Governorship Election Tribunal has struck out the petition filed by Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and Labour Party (LP) from that of Olajide Adediran aka Jandor of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Jandor is challenging the election of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dr Obafemi Hamzat in the March 18 governorship elections in Lagos State.
Justice Mikhail Abdullah who read the judgement ruled that the LP candidate should not have been joined in the petition filed by PDP candidate Mr. Jide Adediran, so therefore, struck out the name of Rhodes-Vivour from the petition filed by the PDP candidate.
Chairman of the panel Justice Arum Ashom had announced that the court will first deliver judgment in the case of the PDP and its candidate before going to give its judgment 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.
