While Ms Johnson is yet to say anything concerning the list, Ms Sadau distanced herself from the appointment.

Ms Daramola, on the other hand, is an active member of the APC.

The office of the Women Leader, Lagos APC, led by Jumoke Okoya-Thomas, organised the rally tagged: “Lagos Women Support Walk for Tinubu/Shettima, Sanwo-Olu, Hamzat”.

The actresses joined other APC female members as they marched at Lagos Island, CMS and adjoining areas singing and pledging allegiance to the candidature of Tinubu/Shettima.

The three-judge panel of the Appeal Court, led by Justice Jimi Olukayode-Bada, after hearing arguments from both parties on Thursday, announced their readiness to deliver a ruling on the matter and instructed all counsels to be present in court by 9 a.m. on Friday, June 14, 2024.
