The Labour Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has announced that the reign of individuals reportedly holding the state to ransom will come to an end after the outcome of today’s elections.
Gbadebo had made the declaration after he had cast his vote at his polling unit in Oshifila Anifowoshe, Ikeja.
He had additionally raised an alarm over reported voter intimidation ongoing in several polling units across Lagos State for the governorship and House of Assembly elections.
Gbadebo had then promised that the intimidation would be resisted.
Rhodes-Vivour is vying for the Lagos State governor seat against Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Abdul-Azeez Adediran, aka Jandor, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The election is expected to be keenly contested, judging from the victory of the Labour Party in the state in the presidential election.
