The former Lagos Governor has remained quiet since after the elections but have been keeping close tabs with Judges handling the Presidential elections petition.
The Election Tribunal has adopted all final address but yet to announce a date for judgement. Fashola, according to informants, is working day and night to conclude his proposed judgement and hand over to the PEPT Judges.
The Judges aside monetary compensations, have been promised elevation to the Supreme Court should they accept Fashola’s version.”
