Labour Party gubernatorial candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of suppressing and intimidating electorates. He said, “The indigenous Lagos people are informed and exposed, but unfortunately the APC government takes its strength from division, violence, intimidation and this is what they have done for almost two decades.
“So, by God’s grace the will of the people will prevail and this government that gets its validity based on voter intimidation will be a thing of the past,” he added.
Rhodes-Vivour, who claimed there have been targeted voter suppression in the ongoing election, said, “Currently now at VGC, the polling agents doesn’t want to go the estate, rather they are trying to get the voters to come to the express, where thugs would harass and disenfranchise voters.”
The Labour Party candidate had earlier cast his vote at his polling unit at PO 045 in Anifowoshe, Ikeja, Lagos State, unfortunately, he lose his polling unit to APC.
GRV as he is popularly called is one of the frontline candidates for the governorship election in Lagos and will be facing off against the incumbent Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Mr. Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The election is expected to be a great competition following the victory of Labour Party in Lagos state in the presidential election, but unfortunately thugs took over the state and disenfranchise so many people especially the Igbos in Lagos from voting.
Rhodes-Vivour has emerged as a popular candidate whose message has resonated with the teeming youths who are the backbone behind the unexpected rise of the Labour Party.
