Rhodes-Vivour Calls Out INEC, Police Over Voter Intimidation In Lagos Gubernatorial Poll
The Labour Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Nigeria Police Force to address the issue of rampant voter intimidation in the state during the Saturday elections.
In a tweet accompanied by a video via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Rhodes-Vivour, accused the electoral body and the police of being complicit in the intimidation of voters.
Rhodes-Vivour also said a peaceful democratic process has been turned into war by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state because people want to express their choice.
He wrote: “A peaceful democratic process has been turned into war by the ruling party because people want to express their choice. The point of governance is to preserve and protect lives, not take them.
“Don’t despair, we are stronger than them. We made plans and we are working hard to secure all voters
“I empathize with all those injured in these attacks, you are the REAL heroes of democracy and your courageousness won’t be in vain.
“We are grateful to all those who came out and are still coming out, we are with you.
”If tonight Lagos catches fire, it will not be because it’s our fault; they did not do the right thing. INEC still has hours to make things right.”
