"I Will Soon Go Back To Collect My Certificate of Return" - Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour Says After Voting

Africa Independent Television (AIT) spoke with Labour Party candidate Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour just after the polls closed on election day on when, if at all, he would congratulate his opponent.

While not congratulating anyone specifically, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour added, "you will see that I will soon be back to get my certificate of return." As he continued, he said, "I want you all to know that if the election does not turn out as I want, I will fight it to the end because we deserve a genuine election."

More from what Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour had to say: "Before the results of the election have been broadcast, I will not comment on its legitimacy. If the election is held without INEC following its protocols, the injunction will be null and void."

In addition, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour stated, "all those responsible for electoral violence are feeling the effects of their actions. Those who employ them for violent ends are simply taking advantage of them since they are out of work."

Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour repeated, "The state of Lagos has the resources to provide its citizens with a high quality of life. With its ample financial resources, the government need not force citizens to waste three hours of their day every day stuck in traffic. In my heart, I know that I am a true son of Lagos, thus I have nothing to fear."

Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour closed the show by saying, "I was told that touts in Ojodu were intimidating and scaring off customers. What they don't realize is that the will of the people will win out in the end. Where I voted was different, since those charlatans couldn't get away with anything."
