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, popularly known as Jandor, has dragged his opponents in the 2023 elections in Lagos State to court.
The opponents are the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Babajide Sanwo-olu and the candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
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, Jandor is making a claim for non-compliance of 21 days notice to INEC by the respondents.
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.
Petition against Gbadegbo Rhodes-Vivour
The petition also included claims against Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party. The filing claimed that the primary election which produced Rhodes-Vivour 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.
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.
