Wednesday, November 22

The Lagos state governorship election tribunal sitting in Ikeja, today dismissed the petition filed by Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Jimi Agbaje, against Akinwunmi Ambode of the All Progressives Congress. Agbaje had earlier petitioned the tribunal challenging the declaration of Ambode as the winner of the April 11, 2015 governorship election in the state.

The three-man tribunal led by a Justice today however upheld the preliminary objection raised by Chief Wole Olanipekun that the petition was incompetent, hence the case was thrown out.
