Labour Party (LP) Gubernatorial candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has charged Lagos youths to come out en masse and hijack the state from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the guber and state assemblies’ polls on the 11th of March.
The Lagos governorship candidate made this statement at a press conference in the Lekki area of the state on Wednesday.
Gbadebo who expressed displeasure at the voter harassment, intimidation and violence that marred last Saturday’s election in the state, encouraged youths not to be deterred by the outcome of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
He also instructed security agencies to protect voters in the state against intimidation and suppression by thugs.
Rhodes-Vivour claims Peter Obi’s votes were manipulated
The Lagos Gubernatorial candidate for the Labour party asserted that the party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi’s votes in Lagos were manipulated because results weren’t electronically transmitted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He said, “We unequivocally reject the process by which the results were announced because it was not electronically as promised by INEC.”
Gbadebo also added that “From our situation room, we see that we won over 900, 000 votes and this was all because you came out. This was won without any voter inducement. We cannot stop thanking the good people of Lagos. We made history in that election; we took Lagos State and restored it back to the people.”
Speaking further, Gbadebo revealed that he is “talking with the owners of the structures of the PDP, the people that matter in the PDP, for a possible alliance that will help them secure victory at the polls.
At the Gubernatorial election, Rhodes-Vivour will be contending with the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and Olajide Adediran aka Jandor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
