Agbaje appears before Lagos Election Tribunal to challenge Ambode’s victory

Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has appeared before the Lagos State Election Petition Tribunal to challenge the victory of the Governor-elect, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In what was the first sitting of the Petition Tribunal, Tuesday, one of the two panels that sat heard the petition filed by Agbaje.

The panel rejected the request by the petitioner to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to make available all materials used for the election, but granted a request to allow the petitioner inspect the materials used specifically for the governorship elections in Lagos State.

It would be recalled that Agbaje had promptly congratulated Ambode after he (Ambode) was declared winner by INEC, saying: “I wish him well and pray he will be successful in guiding this state.”
