Alleges Sanwo-Olu Presented Fake O’Level Certificate
The gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Adbul-Azeez Olajide Adediran who is is also known as Jandor, has dragged his opponents in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babajide Sanwo-olu and the candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour to the elections tribunal.
Jandor is seeking their disqualification in the March 18 election on grounds on substantial non-compliance of the electoral act.
In the petition against Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Hamzat Kadri Obafemi, there is a claim for non-compliance of INEC Time Table which stipulated that all parties must give 21days notice to INEC before the election and such notice must come from the National Headquarters of the party and signed by its National Chairman and Secretary.
The petition claimed the notice in this case emanated not from the National Heeadquarters but from the Lagos State chapter of the APC.
In the case of Dr Hamzat Kadri Obafemi, the petition claimed the Oath page in Form EC9 was not endorsed by the Commissioner for Oaths within the prescribed time.
For Sanwo-Olu, the petition claimed he failed to attach a copy of his GCE O’Level results with his form EC9. It was alleged that the GCE O’Level results of Sanwo-Olu could not be confirmed by WAEC and is thus a forged document.
For Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party, the petition claimed that the primary election which produced him did not comply with the requirements of the electoral law as he was still a member of the Lagos PDP as at the time of participating in the screening exercise, which invalidated his nomination.
Recall that Jandor, according to the results released by INEC, came third behind Babajide-Sanwo-Olu who came first and Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party who was second.
