‘We have not come this far to accept lies’- Rhodes Vivour


Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party candidate has voted to contest the Lagos state governorship results.

He declared that the battle for the Lagos State governorship election has not ended even with a declaration of the APC candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the winner early Monday morning.

Recall that Lagospost reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Sanwo-Olu, who ran on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, the winner on Monday morning.

Rhodes-Vivour disclosed that the election was marred by violence and voter disenfranchisement.
He also claimed that he is the genuine winner of the election.

He said, “Firstly, I would like to thank all Lagosians, especially our supporters, for coming out to vote for us. I’m convinced that with you in our corner, a NEW Nigeria is imminent.

“However, I am saddened by the confirmed reports of violence and gross disenfranchisement of voters who only wished to perform their civic duty. Attacks on polling units, voters, and our party agents are totally antithetical to what we stand for & what Lagos truly represents.

“Collusion between the ruling party and electoral officials to return the candidate of the APC is a slap on the face of democracy and everyone who came out to vote for us on Saturday.

“In light of this, I am convinced beyond any doubt that the results being released by INEC do not represent the wishes of the majority of peaceful Lagosians.

“More so the results from our field agents and situation room indicated that we won this election. I am a champion of the people. We are far from done. Do not lose hope, do not waver.

“This is not over, we have not come this far to accept outright lies, criminality & falsehoods. A fight for FREEDOM is never easily won.

“Every vote cast for me was done in the face of intimidation and risk of personal harm. Every such vote must count. Defending every one of those votes is a sacred duty. I will defend you” he added.
