Produce Sanwo-Olu’s certificate or face legal action, group tells WAEC

A non-political organisation, Eko United Group, has informed the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to produce the original certificate of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu within 48 hours or face legal action.


The group states this during a world press conference held in Lagos on Wednesday.


Eko United noted that it has come to its attention that Governo Sanwo-Olu, who was declared the winner of the state governorship election by the electoral umpire has been accused at the election petition tribunal of presenting a forged statement of WAEC result to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) when he contested in 2019, thereby risking a disqualification as enshrined in section 182 (1) j of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
