The Lagos Court of Appeal has upheld the tribunal’s decision, validating the victory of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Lagos State.

The justices of the appellate court unanimously rejected the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) appeal, citing a lack of merit.

Justice Yargata Nimpa, Justice Samuel Bola, and Justice Paul Bassey issued the ruling on Wednesday.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, in his reaction, commended the Nigerian judiciary for its role in enhancing the country’s democracy following the reaffirmation of his reelection by the Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos.
