AbdulAzeez Adeniran, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, widely known as Jandor, has filed an appeal against the judgment of the election petitions tribunal, which upheld the victory of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a comprehensive 34-ground notice of appeal submitted on Friday, Jandor expressed dissatisfaction with what he described as “the miscarriage of laws” evident in the tribunal’s judgment. He has called on the Court of Appeal to set aside the tribunal’s ruling.
Among the grounds for appeal, Jandor argued that the tribunal made legal errors and reached conclusions that dismissed his petition challenging the qualifications of Governor Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, as the winners of the March 18 governorship election in the state.
This appeal marks the latest legal move in the aftermath of the Lagos State governorship election, reflecting the continued contestation over the outcome of the polls. The statement conveying Jandor’s appeal was released on Friday and signed by Gbenga Ogunleye, the Head of Media and Communications for Jandor4Governor Campaign Organisation.
