The governorship candidate for Labour Party in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has alleged that there is voter suppression in the state.
Rhodes-Vivour said this on Saturday after voting at his polling unit.
He said, “There is voter suppression. Indigenous Lagosians are welcoming and exposing but the APC (All Progressives Congress) takes its strength from division and violence. By God’s grace, the will of the people will prevail and this government that gets its validation from intimidation will be a thing of the past.”
Incumbent Governor Sanwo-Olu is the candidate of the APC in the election.
He lamented that officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission were not cooperating in areas that are Labour Party strongholds.
“I am not congratulating someone that got his mandate from intimidation and suppression, if it happens, I will go to court.
“INEC must transmit votes electronically and we are getting reports where the BVAS has already been preloaded. Whatever intimidation they do, the will of the people will prevail. This is a battle for the people of Lagos,” he said.
