Chief Bode George, a Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed dissatisfaction over the intimidation of voters during the 2023 Gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections.
He made this known shortly after he casted his vote at Eti-Osa Local Government Area in Lagos State.
He said: " The reports I have been getting so far have been very depressing. Thugs were just smashing and snatching ballot boxes. Where I voted at Cameron was peaceful but the reports I have gotten so far from places like Ikeja, Somolu and Kosofe was that thugs were scaring people and ballot boxes were snatched. I see this as voter apathy. What the security agencies are supposed to do is to ensure they protect lives and properties and ensure that voters go about exercise their franchise without any encumbrance. This is disappointing. With this kind of election, how will the international community look at us?"
