The Labour Party, LP, in Lagos State has refused to accept defeat.
The party is set to challenge its loss to the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the March 18 governorship election in the state.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as winner of the state governorship election.
The LP on Tuesday added that the party would also petition INEC, the police and the military over brutal attacks on some LP members in the state.
Sanwo-Olu of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, had been declared winner to the dissatisfaction of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party and Abdul-Azeez Adediran aka Jandor of the Peoples Democratic Party who both vowed to reclaim their mandate in court.
According to INEC, Sanwo-Olu got a total of 762,134 votes, defeating Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour who scored 312,329 votes, followed by Adediran who got 62,449 votes.
However, LP Chairman in Lagos, Mrs. Dayo Ekong who announced its readiness to approach Court at a media briefing on Tuesday, described the victory of the APC as momentary.
According to Ekong, the gubernatorial and assembly poll failed democratic tests, with attacks on loyalists and agents of opposition parties, recalling how violence and threats scuttled the voting process in many polling units across the state.
“Ballot boxes were snatched and burnt; all manner of evil things happened. There was no credibility. It was not free, we will seek redress. Whatever it takes for us to get justice, we will do.
"The party would petition INEC, the police and the military over brutal attacks on some LP members. If the Lagos election goes unchallenged, it would set a bad precedent, urging the youth not to give up," she added.
