BREAKING: Supreme Court confirms election of Sanwo-Olu as Governor of Lagos

The Supreme Court has upheld the election victory of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The central argument of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labor Party candidate for the election, centers on Sanwo-Olu's suitability to be Olu's running mate.

Obafemi Hamzat, the deputy governor, is said to have renounced his Nigerian citizenship.

Sanwo-Olu's deputy is a citizen of Nigeria, the court said.

The Nigerian President must register the renunciation of citizenship of a citizen by birth, the court said, noting that the petitioner had not provided any evidence to that effect.

However, the appeal filed by the Labor Party candidate was rejected by the court due to its lack of validity.

On the PDP side, Abdulazeez Adediran alias Jandor argued that Sanwo-Olu's name on his WAEC certificate was not the same as the name he presented to INEC.
