Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV), the candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the governorship position in Lagos State, declares that he will not congratulate Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who won the election on Saturday.
The incumbent governor was declared the winner of the March 18th gubernatorial election by the INEC after clearing 19 out of 20 LGAs in the state.
Rhodes-Vivour characterized the election as a fraudulent one while sharing a video at a press conference to illustrate how the election results were manipulated to benefit Sanwo-Olu.
GRV on Why he Won’t Congratulate Sanwo-Olu
“The signatures are there, but these results have been tampered with and uploaded. Also, a lot of results are called authentic results, but they are state of assembly results or presidential results. These results are being calculated and announced by INEC. There are so many instances of these, and it won’t stand.
“We have our own results, which we are in the lead and we will challenge this in a court of law. This was a sham and compromise of an election, it was an illegality that has never been perpetrated in Lagos since I was born.
“This was an election where an entire agent of a party was chased away from their polling unit. I will never call Babajide Sanwo-Olu to congratulate him for this sham of an election.
“This has set the precedence for violence in the election as ideas might not be discussed anymore.”
