Guber poll: Remain calm and peaceful even when provoked, Osuntokun tells LP supporters

The director-general of the Labour Party (LP) campaign, Akin Osuntokun, has urged supporters to remain calm and peaceful, even in the face of provocation. He claimed that the LP's strong showing in the recent presidential and national assembly polls in Lagos has caused the opposition to stir up ethnic tension in the state. Osuntokun asserted that this was an attempt to prevent the LP from winning the next elections for governor and state legislature.

According to Osuntokun, the fear that the Igbos might take control of Lagos if the LP wins the governorship and state assembly elections is being fueled and weaponized. He questioned how exactly the Igbos would take control of Lagos and suggested that those stoking racial tension are not natives of the city but rather seeking to prevent their party from being humiliated once more.

Osuntokun emphasized the need for peaceful and harmonious coexistence, rejecting hateful and violent politics. He called for self-control and composure in the face of provocation, which he believes demonstrates emotional intelligence rather than cowardice or naivete. He urged supporters to resist the temptation to incite violence and emphasized the importance of maintaining peace for the sake of the LP and its members.
