Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commended the Nigerian judiciary for its role in enhancing the country’s democracy following the reaffirmation of his reelection by the Court of Appeal.

“Our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), will continue to maintain its firm belief in the judicial process.
