The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the 2023 election, Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, has given conditions that must be met to have a sit-down with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.
Naija News recalls that the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal had on Monday affirmed the election of Sanwo-Olu as the duly elected governor of Lagos State, dismissing petitions filed by Jandor and the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
Reacting to the judgment through his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, Sanwo-Olu called on Adediran and Rhodes-Vivour to collaborate with him to serve the people of the state.
The governor disclosed that he was ready to sit down with the duo and have conversations about their ideas on the development of the state.
But reacting to Sanwo-Olu’s offer, Jandor stated that he is ready to honour the request if the governor meets certain conditions.
According to the PDP governorship candidate, Sanwo-Olu must make public his 1981 original WAEC certificate, make a state-wide broadcast to Lagosians explaining the discrepancies in names on his WAEC result, and explain the reason he asked his lawyers to oppose the application seeking a forensic audit of the WAEC result.
“I just read now that Governor Sanwoolu, in a statement after yesterday’s judgement that gave him yet another temporary victory, is calling for a sit down with me so as to move Lagos forward.
“I welcome this call, and I am ready to honour it upon Mr. Sanwoolu’s demonstration of honour and respect for the citizens of Lagos by doing the following:
“(1) Make public his 1981 Original WAEC Certificate since he deposed under oath in his INEC form EC9 that he sat for GCE O level in that year
“(2)He must, in a state-wide broadcast, tell Lagosians why the discrepancies in names on WAEC result he presented to INEC and the ones that appear on same 1981 Master list that WAEC tendered at the tribunal, despite same exam number, exam year, exam centres, but different names
“(3) Explain why you asked your lawyers to oppose our application to do a forensic audit of the WAEC back-end server for further verification.
“I am positive that these are easily doable and won’t take any time at all to effect,” Adediran said via his X handle @officialjandor.
“We must uphold the core tenets of integrity and accountability, especially as people sworn to the service of the public,” he added.
