AD to challenge the result of Lagos State Governorship election

– AD disclosed it would challenge the result of the 2019 Lagos State Governorship election in Court

– The party disclosed it has evidence and will pursue the case in court to a conclusive end

According to a new report, one of the Political Parties, Alliance for Democracy AD that contested in the Lagos State Governorship Election on the 9th of March has rejected the result of the election released by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC.

INEC declared Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress APC winner of the Governorship election in the state but the AD Governorship candidate, Chief Owolabi Salis claimed that the election was marred by irregularities, intimidation, double voting and collation fraud.

The AD Governorship candidate disclosed he would not accept the result of the election as he disclosed he doesn’t believe that the Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu won in a clear contest.

While speaking with pressmen in Lagos, Chief Owolabi Salis said: “I am not accepting the result of the governorship election. It is complete fraud. This is not an election and I totally reject it. A lot of miscounting was done against AD. They tried to relegate us by putting us in the sixth position. I do not believe Sanwo-Olu won in a clear contest.”

Chief Owolabi Salis in his statement also disclosed he has overwhelming evidence and that he would head to the court to seek redress.
