LP Lagos governorship candidate decries voter intimidation


LABOUR Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has expressed concerns about voter intimidation reports in different parts of the state during the ongoing governorship elections.

Rhodes-Vivour stated that he had received news of voter intimidation in parts of Ojo, Oshodi, and Isolo and is working to address the issues.

In a press statement before casting his vote, Rhodes-Vivour emphasized the importance of peaceful elections and urged all candidates to uphold the principles of democracy.

    The candidate, who voted at his polling unit at PO 045 in Anifowoshe, Ikeja, called on voters to come out en masse to vote for their preferred candidates.

    He also appealed to the electoral commission and security agencies to ensure the election was conducted peacefully and transparently.

    Rhodes-Vivour is one of the leading contenders in the elections and is set to face off against the incumbent, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

    The election is expected to be keenly contested following the victory of the Labour Party in Lagos state in the presidential election.
