Lagos 2023: We Will Resist Voter Intimidation, Harassment – Rhodes-Vivour



The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has said the party would resist any form of voter intimidation and harassment in the forthcoming March 18 elections.

Rhodes-Vivour asserted that his focus is the security and safety of Lagosians that would come out en masse and vote for their preferred candidate.

CityNews Nigeria reports that Rhodes-Vivour stated this during an appearance on Channels Television on Thursday.

He said: “My focus now is on security and ensuring that people come out to vote and they are not intimidated or harassed because any form of intimidation or harassment will be met with resistance. It’s just that simple.”

Speaking on the postponement of the governorship elections, Rhodes-Vivour said the rescheduling of the polls has not dampened his momentum and determination to become the next governor of Lagos.

“It is not about rushing an election; it is about getting it right and that is why we got the injunction to ensure that INEC actually follows its processes. There are a lot of things that must be done right if we want to get this country on the right path,” he said.

The LP governorship candidate, however, said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would have to win the trust of Nigerians following the outcome of the February 25 presidential and National Assembly polls.
