WAEC Disowns Sanwo-Olu's GCE Result Submitted to INEC

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the Lagos State governorship election is being challenged by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Mr. Adediran, who have filed a petition with the election petitions tribunal.

They are seeking to disqualify Sanwo-Olu and nullify his victory over an alleged fake GCE result that was submitted to INEC during his first-term governorship bid.

The petitioners claim that Sanwo-Olu failed to attach a copy of the GCE O’Level result he claimed to obtain in 1981 along with his form EC9 as required by the Electoral Act 2022.

They allege that the result was discovered to be fake when they approached WAEC for confirmation.

The PDP and Adediran also want the disqualification of the All Progressives Congress and the Labour Party candidates in the election for non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2022.

The petitioners challenged the outcome of the March 18 governorship election on the grounds of substantial non-compliance with the electoral law and the Independent National Electoral Commission guidelines.

The petitioners also claim that at the time of the governorship election, Sanwo-Olu, Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat, and Labour’s candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, were not qualified to contest.

The PDP and Adediran prayed that all votes cast for them in the election be declared wasted.

The petitioners cited four grounds of non-compliance warranting disqualification of Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat, declared the winner of the election by INEC, and another four grounds of non-compliance warranting disqualification of Rhodes-Vivour, who was declared to have scored the second-highest number of votes in the election.

The petitioners claim that the APC did not comply with the ‘INEC Time Table and Schedule of Activities for the 2023 General Election’ and failed to submit the nomination form of its candidate(s) not later than 180 days before the conduct of the general election in forms EC9.

They also cited the omission of the oath page in Form EC9 for Hamzat, which would have shown that it was not endorsed by the commissioner for oath within the time prescribed by the Electoral Law 2022.
