Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour, the Labour Party candidate for governor, was defeated by incumbent governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in his voting district. GRV's defeat, according to Michael, the Labour Party agent working at Gbadebo's polling place, was unexpected because he was clearly in the lead. He claimed that the meddling by the EFCC at the voting places was the reason of the changes.
He claimed that after being sent outside the voting unit by EFCC operatives, the outcome had already been changed by the time he returned.
In addition to the obvious vote buying, the Labour Party agent lamented that there was voter suppression in the region and that his life was in danger. He said that the EFCC contributed to Gbadebo's loss in his voting district.
Simply by observing the poll, he declared, "I have seen a lot of electoral misconduct, and there has been no change since the last election. The APC representatives are purchasing people's votes, therefore everything is biased. I think that this election is a fraud.
