Lagos Governorship Elections Tribunal strikes out Rhodes-Vivour, LP from Adediran’s petition

The Lagos State Governorship Election Tribunal has struck out the petition filed by Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and Labour Party (LP) from that of Olajide Adediran a.k.a Jandor of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Justice Mikhail Abdullah stated this while delivering judgment in the objections raised by respondents in the matter.

Justice Ashom also announced that his colleague on the bench, Justice Mikail Abdullahi will read the judgment on behalf of the panel.
