"It is just a waste of time waiting with bated breath to hear the judgment from the Lagos Gubernatorial Election Petitions Tribunal.
"There is nothing to anticipate. The challenge to Governor Sanwo-Olu's reelection will be rightly dismissed for lack of merit, and at least one of the parties (Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivor) will appeal.
"There's going to be no surprise. GRV and Jandor lost freely, fairly and transparently to Sanwo-Olu. When they are credible, we must learn to accept the outcomes of our elections, or we must face ejections from the system."
