Rhodes-Vivour added that lot of areas were under intense attacks by thugs and hooligans but the APC said he likes sportsmanship.

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Gbadebo Rodes-Vivour in a Twitter post, alleged intimation of voters across the state and accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Police of complicity.

Gbadebo explained that

fom all over Lagos, they are getting distressing reports of voter intimation, voter suppression, he further added that lot of areas were under intense attacks by thugs and hooligans of the APC, that should there be any breakdown of law and order in the state, the law enforcement agencies should know who to grab.

He thereafter called on INEC, most especially, and the police not to set Lagos State on fire, appealing that the INEC REC and everybody involved in this election should make sure they do the right thing and create at least the perception and the actuality of a free and fair election.

In response to him, the  All Progressive People’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Seye Oladeji says alleged threat by Labour Party’s governorship candidate, Rhodes- Vivour at the Saturday’s election shows his lack of sportsmanship, stressing that the LP candidate is playing victim, he stated that it’s supporters APC were attacked and harrased during the process. 

Oladejo stressed that the APC has no need to be violent because of the glittering credentials of Babajide Sanwo- Olu, who will never be associated with violence.

Seye Oladejo, spokesperson of the APC in Lagos, described the LP as “bad losers”.

The governorships and house of assembly elections is still ongoing in some areas of Lagos State.
