As parts of efforts to ensure fair-hearing and justice for all aggrieved parties in the just concluded elections across the 57 LGs/LCDAs in Lagos, the State Chief Judge, Justice Oluwafunmilayo Atilade has inaugurated two tribunals that would examine complaints from aggrieved party members.
The tribunals were inaugurated yesterday, Friday, July 28, 2017.
Speaking on the development, Justice Atilade said the inauguration of the Tribunal was very important to the completion of the electoral process.
“The Local Government Elections held on July 22, 2017 in Lagos State remains inconclusive without providing a platform as prescribed by the Electoral Law, for aggrieved parties or individuals to seek redress through a seamless legal process,” she said.
While describing members of the committee as men and women of proven integrity with vast knowledge in relevant laws, Justice Atilade charged the committee members to see their new task as a call to service and ensure that the oath of office remains their guide.
“I urge you to see this as a call to service and to know that people are watching, all eyes are on you. Your oath of office should remain your guide,” she said.
After the inauguration, Justice Olateru Olagbegi was named as Chairman of the first tribunal while Mrs. Folashade Adetiba was named the Chairman of the second tribunal.
