Tinubu’s Call for Healing Can’t Happen Without Justice – Rhodes-Vivour
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party has said that the President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s call for healing after the elections cannot happen without justice to all the alleged infractions that happened during the electoral process that is now nearing completion.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the president elect, had earlier asked for the healing process to begin after the conclusion of February 25th Presidential/National Assembly and the March 18th Governorship/State Assembly elections are over.
Rhodes-Vivour also said the party will explore all available legal options to address alleged injustices that affected the governorship and assembly polls in the state. The governorship polls which was a three-horse race that had incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) and Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) slug it out with each other.
At the end of the contest, Prof Adenike Oladiji, the Returning Officer, while declaring the results on Monday said Sanwo-Olu, polled a total of 762,134 votes to defeat his closest rival, Rhodes-Vivour who polled a total of 312,329 votes, while Adediran polled a total of 62,449 votes.
Rhodes-Vivour during a world press conference said his message during the campaigns was based on empathy, love, good governance devoid of the rancor.
He also assured the victims of Saturday’s polls who suffered violence would be well taken care with the hospital bills covered, having visited them earlier.
According to him, “Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu called for healing yesterday, but healing cannot happen without justice. The APC unleashed evil on Lagosian, diabolically with their fetish rites and curses during the day, and physical violence against all Lagosian, yet they want the peace of a graveyard, they want the healing of the dead.
He further attacked the APC for the electoral violence which made a lot of the people disenfranchised.
Rhodes-Vivour claimed there was no election as it was violence on multiple levels, diabolically and physically. He implored his fellow Lagosians that their enemies are not their neighbours or visitors or fellow Lagosian with diverse tongues, but their common enemy is violence, insecurity, poverty, stagnation, corruption, and underdevelopment.
He called on the silent majority, decent and cultured Lagosian, indigenous Lagosian and Lagosian at large to speak out. “It is enough of the worst of us defining the rest of us. On Saturday, we saw their vision for Lagos and ‘agberocracy’, and we will fight through all legal channels to birth OUR LAGOS,” the statement”, he said.
