LLPP commends Lagos LG Tribunal decisions

LAGOS – Lagos League of Political Parties, LLPP, Sunday hailed some of the decisions taken by the Lagos State Local Government Election Petitions Tribunal.

The tribunal led by Justice Ade Owobiyi on Friday declared the PDP candidate as the validly elected Chairman of Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area.

The tribunal also ordered a re-run election in Yaba Local Council Development Area.

In a statement signed by LLPP’s Lagos State Chairman, Mr. Udoka Udeogaranya, the League said that the tribunal was living up to expectation.

He said that tribunal’s courage was what was needed to give the 2011 Lagos State council polls its expected credibility.

“It is a quintessential verdict to order the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) to immediately issue a Certificate of Return to the PDP candidate.

“It is, however, our view that this merited order to conducted a re-run in Yaba LCDA must not be delayed by LASIEC,“ the statement read.

The League said: “LLPP counsels that the judiciary has an expedient role to play in creating a harmonious political environment that often eludes African societies after elections.”
