Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Lagos governorship candidate of the Labour Party, has expressed his displeasure over the reported cases of violence in some areas of Lagos.
A video of Rhodes-Vivour has gone viral, where he criticized INEC and the police for provoking Lagosians and urged them to conduct a peaceful, fair, and credible election.
In his words, “INEC and the police [should] realize that they are provoking Lagosians right now. If tonight Lagos catches fire, it is not our fault. It is because they did not do the right thing. A lot of areas are still under intense attacks by thugs and hooligans of the APC. I call on INEC and the police not to set Lagos on fire.”
“This is a state that houses 22 million people. Having that many people angry because of their disenfranchise is not something Nigeria needs right now,” he added.
