The presiding judge, His Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke, has delivered a verdict in a case filed by the Labor Party, its gubernatorial candidate Gbadebo Rhodes-Victor, and four others, according to Naija News.

Other applicants for the lawsuit are: the African Democratic Congress, the Boot Party, and their respective gubernatorial candidates Hunshaw Dougherty and Wale Oluwo. The court granted an injunction on Monday before staying the main issue. A hearing was held on the merits on Wednesday, after which the court postponed judgment until Friday (today).
