Tribunal sacks LP’s Thaddeus Attah, orders supplementary election in Eti Osa, Lagos state
The Tribunal sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State, has sacked the Labour Party (LP) Lawmaker, Thaddeus Attah’s victory as Representative of the Eti Osa Federal Constituency of Lagos State, Aso Naija Reports.
The court ordered INEC to conduct a supplementary election in the 32 polling units of Eti-Osa within 90 days.
INEC has also been ordered to withdraw the return certificate issued to Attah and conduct elections in areas where the election wasn’t held on February 25.
To confirm the news the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Ibrahim Obanikoro, wrote on his Instagram story that, “The Feb 25 election has just been rightly declared inconclusive and supplementary elections have been ordered by the court. INEC has been ordered to withdraw the return certificate and conduct elections in areas where it didn’t hold on Election Day.”
His colleague from the PDP, Olubankole Wellington also wrote on his Twitter page, “It is possible. Still.”
It is possible. Still.

It should be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) proclaimed Attah of the LP as the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat winner in the House of Representatives election.
Attah’s win was heavily questioned by residents and was further challenged in court by opposing parties.
