Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, a gubernatorial candidate for the Labour Party, has strongly denounced the All Progressives Congress (APC) for their alleged suppression and intimidation of voters. He declared that the people of Lagos are well-informed and aware, yet the APC has been relying on division, violence, and intimidation to maintain power for nearly two decades. He believes that, with God’s help, the will of the people will prevail and this oppressive government will be a thing of the past.
Rhodes-Vivour has also accused the APC of targeting voter suppression in the current election. He reported that their agents are refusing to go to the estates, instead attempting to force votes to come to the express where they can be harassed and deprived of their right to vote.
The Labour Party candidate cast his own vote at PO 045 in Anifowoshe, Ikeja, Lagos State. He is one of the main contenders in the election, facing off against incumbent Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the APC and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Labour Party. The election is expected to be a close race due to Labour’s success in the presidential election.
Rhodes-Vivour has become a popular figure among the youth, who have been a driving force behind Labour’s unexpected surge in popularity.
