Sanwo-Olu unfit to govern Lagos – Parties


As preparations continue towards the handover of power from Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on May 29, 2019, there are claims about the governor-elect’s unfitness.

The Labour Party and Alliance for Democracy have in separate petitions asked the governorship election tribunal to declare him unfit.

The governorship candidates, Owolabi Salis (AD) and Fagbemi Awamari (LP)  prayed the tribunal to upturn the results of the March 9 governorship election, claiming that the election was marred by voter intimidation, vote-buying and multiple voting, adding that Sanwo-Olu was not fit to contest the 2019 governorship election.

The candidates also sought a declaration of the tribunal that the pronouncement of Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the governorship election was null and void, and should be set aside based on the gross electoral fraud and/or gross electoral misconduct that characterised the governorship election in the state.
