Rhodes-Vivour laments ‘vote suppression’ in Lagos

Labour Party candidate for the Lagos State gubernatorial poll, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has vowed to seek redress in court if the outcome of the ongoing election does not favour him.

The Labour Party candidate, who spoke shortly after casting his vote at his polling unit 045, Oshifila/Abule Igbira in Anifowose, Ikeja, alleged that there are incidences of vote suppression by thugs supporting his opponent.

He, however, insisted that the will of Lagos residents must prevail in the election.

Rhodes-Vivour 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 that we are strong and we show strength, polling materials have yet to arrive.

“I’m not congratulating someone that has his mandate from voter suppression and intimidation. Why would I do that? I will go to court”.

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.
