The Court of Appeal in Lagos has affirmed the judgment of the tribunal, confirming the return of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Lagos State.

In its ruling on September 25, the tribunal dismissed the PDP’s governorship candidate, Abdulazeez Adediran and Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour’s suit seeking to nullify the victory of Sanwo-Olu at the poll.
