Labour Party Candidate Raises Concerns over Voter Intimidation in Lagos
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the candidate for the Labour Party in the gubernatorial race, has expressed concern over reports of voter intimidation in Lagos. In a statement released on his social media platforms, Gbadebo implored the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Nigeria Police to urgently intervene in order to prevent any further escalation of the situation.
The candidate also cautioned against any potential outbreak of violence, stressing that if such an unfortunate occurrence were to happen, it would not be the fault of the people but rather a consequence of the failure of the relevant authorities to take the necessary action to ensure a peaceful and transparent electoral process.
The call for urgent action comes amid reports of irregularities and voter intimidation in some parts of Lagos, which have raised concerns among the electorate and various stakeholders in the election. Gbadebo’s appeal to INEC and the Nigeria Police to take immediate action to address these issues reflects the urgent need for a credible and transparent electoral process.
It is crucial for all stakeholders to uphold the rule of law and respect the democratic process. Therefore, Gbadebo’s call for urgent intervention is timely, and it is hoped that the relevant authorities will take necessary steps to ensure a peaceful and transparent election. The people of Lagos deserve nothing less.
