Election: What I’ll do if I lose – LP’s Rhodes-Vivour decries ‘vote suppression’ in Lagos
The Labour Party candidate for the Lagos State gubernatorial election, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has vowed to seek redress in court if the outcome of the ongoing election does not favor him.
The Labour Party candidate, who spoke shortly after casting his vote at polling unit 045, Oshifila/Abule Igbira, in Anifowose, Ikeja, alleged that there were incidences of vote suppression by thugs supporting his opponent.
He, however, insisted that the will of Lagos residents must prevail in the election.
He said, “The will of the people will prevail." There has been a lot of targeted voter suppression.
“We have a situation where in Alimosho, in Iba, polling unit materials have not arrived. You find out that everywhere we are strong and we show strength, polling materials have yet to arrive.
“I’m not congratulating someone who got his mandate through voter suppression and intimidation. Why would I do that? "I will go to court."
The Daily Post reports that the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is competing against Rhodes-Vivour and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Lagos State, Dr Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, better known as Jandor.
Although there were reports of threats from political thugs, it was observed that the election is enjoying a massive turnout across the state.
